Question posted in the Family Law category relating to KwaZulu-Natal

Hi and thank you in advance. The situation I have is my late wife had a boyfriend who is trying to claim custody of my 14 year old son. During the time my wife and this man were together, they had a another girl child who is now 6 years old. After this I moved on and had a boy child who is 5 years  old now. My late wife's boyfriend is using his child as a guilt tactic to make my 14 year feel bad that he doesn't spend time with his sibling, to gain custody of my child. This man has now approached family court for a hearing date to obtain custody. The date is 29-06-2021. Please assist with any information and advice. Thank you. I can be contacted on ***BLOCKED-EMAIL-ADDRESS***
