Legal Question

Paying someone else's judgment

My daughter and her husband have been served with a judgment from a previous landlord about paying for damages. The landlord has brought a civil suit against them. I do not know where my daughter is but the papers keep coming to my address. I am willing to pay for this for my grandchildren's sake and to keep my daughter out of more trouble. What are the legal ramifications of my paying for this and can I do it without incurring any legal problems of my own? My daughter is 26 and hasn't lived at home for over 6 years. Thank you.
