I'm trying to find out how old Jake & Mia are. They don't warrant any
actual info on the BBC TA page. All it says is:
"Will Grundy started dating single mother Nic in the summer of 2007...
Nic was living in a small rented house after an acrimonious break-up
with her unreliable (and unfaithful) partner Andrew. Since giving up
her job at Regal Coaches in Hollerton after the birth of her second
child Mia, Nic found herself caught in a "benefit trap", with little
incentive to return to employment."
So Mia must be getting on for 11 at least and Jake is older, probably
about 13, but is he older than George, who will be 13 in April. Poppy
is just about at school.
But it also gives the impression that Andrew is a waste of space,
unless he's also had a total personality transplant in later years.
This is why I thought Will might have adopted the kids. I know
several families where the biological father is still around, but the
step father has adopted the kids to have full parental responsibility.
Has Andrew ever paid maintenance for them?
