Not so long ago I wrote an article about the fact that in South African law there is in fact no such thing as a common law marriage and that partners that cohabitates or live together in a domestic partnership will in fact have no right to claim maintenance from one another. In fact, this was exactly what the Supreme Court of Appeal ruled this week in the matter of McDonald v Young (292/10) [2011] ZASCA 31 on 24 March 2011.

Love and Money: Tie up the loose ends before you get married

Posted by Bertus in Out of community of propert , family law , divorce attorney cape town , divorce , costs of antenuptial contract , community of property , antenuptial contracts , accrual

Bertus

The problem with an antenuptial contract is that it is drawn up at a time when divorce is probably the last thing on one's mind.

Yet the contract governs what will happen to a married couple's assets in the event of divorce or dissolution of the marriage. And it has implications for married life too. Moreover, it's a bargain compared to what a wedding costs.

Refusal by mother to submit her and child to paternity testing

Bertus

The new Children's Act places in Section 36 a presumption in respect of a child born out of wedlock. The presumption is that the person whom had sexual intercourse with the mother at any time when that child could have been conceived will be presumed to be the biological father of the child in the absence of evidence to the contrary which raises reasonable doubt. In S v L 1992 (3) SA 713 (E) it was held that the phrase "in the absence of evidence to the contrary which raises reasonable doubt" means that whenever there is evidence to the contrary, the presumption does not operate or ceases to operate.
