The Department of Justice and Constitutional Development has amended the Magistrate's Courts Act of 1944 giving powers to Regional Courts to now deal with divorce cases as well. President Jacob Zuma announced the commencement of the Jurisdiction of Regional Courts Amendment Act which came into effect on 9th August 2010, the National Woman's Day. The Regional Courts were established in 1952 to deal with divorces, serious criminal offences and mete out harsher penalties. The amendments increase access to justice to members of the public, in particular, women and children who go to courts daily for the resolution of family related disputes relating to divorce; maintenance; adoption; and matters relating to custody of minor children.

When your spouse serves a summons on you, must DO something! If you do fail to put in a notice of your intention to defend, the case can be finalised without any further reference to you and this can be disastrous as the Plaintiff (the spouse that issues the Summons) can be awarded exactly what were requested in the Summons. Therefore you will need to get advice from a divorce attorney. It may cost you some money, but it is better to know your rights than to lose all that you have contributed to all those years.

Domestic Violence

What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is aggression or violence that happens in the home. In most cases, the violence is carried out by a man against a woman, although not always.

It can happen in any family and in all kinds of homes and includes:

According to the Domestic Violence Act 116 of 1998, domestic violence" means-

- physical abuse;
- sexual abuse;
- emotional, verbal and psychological abuse;
- economic abuse;
- intimidation;
- harassment;
- stalking;
- damage to property;
- entry into the complainant's residence without consent, where the parties do not share the same
  residence; or
- any other controlling or abusive behaviour towards a complainant.

How to get a restraining order:
Step 1

Note all the incidents of domestic violence committed to you or your children on paper. Be clear with dates and times.
Obtain all relevant details of the person whom you want to be protected against, e.g. his/her home and work address and identity number etc.

Step 2
Go to the Domestic Violence Court closes to you. The Clerk of the Court will hand you a document to complete. The document is referred to as an "Application for Protection Order". Use the information you gathered in Step 1 and complete in the document. The document is an affidavit so be sure that what you say is true and correct.

After you have filled in the Application for Protection Order document, the Clerk of the Court will take the completed documents to a Magistrate who would read through it and ask you a couple of questions. The Magistrate will then either:

(a) dismiss your application if there is no evidence that domestic violence is taking place;
(b) grant an Interim Protection Order in your favour which will be finalised on a date provided by the Court where the Respondent will have a chance to give his / her side of the story; or

(c) postpone the matter without granting an Interim Protection Order and provide a date when the Respondent will get a chance to give his / her side of the story.

It is important to note that an Interim Protection Order has no force until it is served on the Respondent.
Step 3

The Respondent has to be informed about the application and the return date. The Clerk of the Court will give you the necessary documents to deliver at a Police Station or sheriff's office in order to serve it on the Respondent.
If the Respondent commits any act of domestic violence towards you, after the order was granted report the matter immediately to the Police and if there is no Interim Protection in place yet, go and report it to the Domestic Violence Court in order to get an order.

    Maintenance is the obligation to provide another person, (for example a minor), with food, housing, clothing, medical care and education, or with means that are necessary for providing the person with these essentials. This is a legal duty and also called 'the duty to maintain' or 'the duty to support'.

    Application for a maintenance order

    Who must provide maintenance?

    The duty to maintain is based on blood relationship, adoption, or the fact that the parties are married to each other.

    A child must be supported or maintained by:
  • his or her parents, whether married, living together, separated or divorced, including parents who have adopted the child; and/or
  • his or her grandparents, whether or not the child's parents were married to each other. However, this varies from one case to another.

The duty to support a family member is not limited to supporting a child. Any family member, irrespective of his or her age, can ask any family member to support or maintain him or her, provided that the following two conditions are met:
