Default sponsoring parents

Does anyone who has had experience of sponsoring parents know if the centre of gravity rule for children applies to non-dependent adult step-children from a previous marriage who never lived with my parent? Should they be declared? Complicated !!! Thanks

To be clear.
Do you mean that one of your parents has children from a previous marriage who live in the UK. Dependant or independent.
Or do you mean that youer parents was previously married to a person who had kids by another partner but that those kids never lived with your parent and the partner of the time. In other words, not blood relatives.

From the NZIS website

F4.5.20 Definition of 'centre of gravity'
  1. A family's centre of gravity is in New Zealand if either:
    1. the principal applicant parent has no dependent children (see F4.5.5), and
    2. the number of their adult children (see F4.5.10) lawfully and permanently (see F4.5.1 above) in New Zealand is equal to or greater than those lawfully and permanently in any other single country, including the country in which the principal applicant is lawfully and permanently; or
    1. the principal applicant parent has dependent children, and
    2. the number of their adult children lawfully and permanently in New Zealand is equal to or greater than those lawfully and permanently in any other single country, including the country in which the principal applicant parent is lawfully and permanently, and
    3. the number of their dependent children is equal to or fewer than, the number of their adult children who are lawfully and permanently in New Zealand.

If they are not blood related children of either of your parents , then they are of another family and parents entirely and do not come into the equation. Unless of course they were legally adopted by the step-parent. Then that might be another matter.
