Thank you for your answer. I So it is possible for the maintenance to increase? What about his new family? He also has responsibility to provide for his own home and his new baby.Would that not be taken into consideration at the court?
The ex lives with her mother and her boyfriend, she had an affair with whist married. Then left my fiance and he paid her out whatever money was due to her. She has demaned where the child goes to school (a private school) which he pays for. He pays for pretty much everything except his boarding. R4000 for school, R1750 maintenance and R725 for medical aid. Surely that should be more than sufficient?
Her grounds for extra money is so that she can rent a house for her and her boyfriend, and the child will then have his own room. The boyfriend also has 2 kids from a previous marriage which he sees every second weekend.
So if a person earns a million rand a month and the ex earns R10000 a month. The person will then have to support the ex? I just find the law to be quite unfair, in this case this women is trying to get more money to subsidize her own life style, and using the child as the exuse. Besides all the demands as to know where the child is at all times when visiting with the father is that legal? She does have sole custody.
Would suing for custody be an option in this case? That way the child would be financed without the mother benefiting.
