Good day

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you in answering your question today so please feel free to ask as many follow-up questions as you like until you are satisfied that I have answered your question.

My best advice that I can give you is to get assistance from an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, you can apply to the Leagal Aid Board of South Africa for assistance. They will assist you with everything that you need to do.

If you cannot do that, then it should suffice if you give the name and address or contact details that you have of the grandmother to the family court.

You can also contact a tracer for assistance to get her details. You can click here to be redirected to a website of tracers.

I trust that this answered your question.

Please be so kind as to rate my service by clicking on the relevant stars or smiley faces. If you do not rate my service, I donot get paid by the website so I would really appreciate it if you would be so kind as to rate my service positively.

Kind regards
