he has his own company that isn't doing very well we were in maintenance court for 9 months and he said he could not pay he gets net R17 000 and I get Net R18 000 so it was a 50/50 split BUT when we got divorced I took a one payment a month with only CPI increase which was R6000 now its down to R5500 and we have to review every September to see what he can afford so CPI isn't in the cards anymore and his low amount and the kids costs are R21 000 my parents are helping me afford them and I am remarried.
I just want to know can I go after his parents for the 50/50 split to be equal?
