Child Support And Child Maintenance

In South Africa.

A Practical Guide On Child Support Law And Payment Of Child Maintenance Enforcement.

Advice and help on getting the child support and maintenance that you are entitled to.

  • Do you know how to calculate child support?
    The court ask two questions:
    – How much money you need for the child 
    – How much money both parents earn
  • Are you getting the child support your child deserves?
  • Are you newly divorced and don’t know where to go from here?
  • Are you constantly battling your ex-spouse to get the payment of child maintenance that your children are entitled to?
  • Are you in dire straits and can’t even afford to hire a lawyer to advise you on child support law?
Then this practical manual is for you. A practical guide that defines yours, and your children’s rights in the maintenance world.  With new self-confidence you can control your own child maintenance in the future. No need to fear the courts or the child support law system with this guide in hand. Written by a single mom with 21 years maintenance experience, been there, done that, got the T-Shirt. (The gardener do not want the shirts!)
Real world practical advice and resources for single parents with the financial responsibility of raising children on their own from someone who has walked the walk. Both psychologists and the courts now refer people to me to counsel them on getting their maintenance affairs in order. I’ve used layman’s terms to explain and advise you on what can be a VERY emotional and difficult topic.
Marie, I just wanted to thank you for this gem of a book. I was desperate and didn’t even know where to start. My ex just made fewer and fewer payments and I just couldn’t take his excuses and lies anymore. Your step-by-step guide has helped me to GET him to pay on time, the correct amount. Thank You!” Charlene C

” Marie, I didn’t know where to start or who to turn to.  All I wanted was to get him to pay.  Your guide took the fear away and prepared me for what lay ahead.  It was a ray of light in what looked like a very dark tunnel for me…”  M Jennings
The maintenance courts are part of the criminal system and you share the Court corridors with everybody.  Be prepared for all of this.  It is obviously not pleasant to appear in court, possibly also seeing the other parent, and certainly not to motivate to others how you manage your household.  Just remember you are asking what is rightfully your child’s.  It is all worth it.  You actually owe this effort to your child.  This manual will show you how and what to expect.
Focus on Rands and cents, and hopefully emotional arguments can be avoided.  Irrefutable proof will pull you through. This manual will show you exactly how as well as taking the headache out of getting the child support and child maintenance that you need.

This guide will:

  • Save you time and money, my experience is that the parent can do all the ground work, and then just use a lawyer on the court date.
  • Save you a lot of effort
  • Give you the confidence to deal with child support and the courts
  • Give you the resources you will need to present your case
  • Guide you step by step through the process
