Automatically populating a category dropdown of a parent categories children

  1. I will be using multiple forms and I have hundreds of categories.

    I am using the Post Fields > Category Field which allows me to select each individual category but as I ad more categories in the future I would need the form to update the categories automatically.

    Example:
    I have a category called 'Car' and 3 Child categories called 'Estate' 'Hatchback' 'Convertible' which all have 'Car' as the Parent Category. If I were to add a 4th called 'Sports' then I need my form to update and show the up-to-date child categories that are under Car.

    Any help would be great
