Question posted in the Family Law category relating to Gauteng
Hi. My name is Godfrey. I filed for a divorce with a firm of Attorneys in Pretoria and the case was put on the roll on 22 January 2020. I am u employed but moved of the marital home on 22 March 2020 because the hostility which prevailed and went to live family. It had been a long route to get my wife and her attorney to respond to Rule 43. When they did, they did not disclose that my wife has two annuities nor did they give the IRP 5.
In her answering Affidavit, signed under oath, she vehemently stipulated I left the marital home in February, to fit in with her narrative she has conjured when counter-suing.
Of all the lies she wrote under oath, I found the above disturbing because:
* I have GPS positions putting my car and phone at home.
* Bank statements prove I did purchases at the nearby shops until 29/03/2020
* In February 2020 the community near my marital home asked that I lead a committee to find a company to install surveillance cameras in our neighbourhood. An inspection was done and quotations issued to me on 20/02/2020. The Committee held a meeting a few days later to discuss the cost.
All the above three are documented. I will be meeting with my lawyer soon but want to ask if people can lie like this during a divorce, without proof, and there be no consequence? Can I charge my wife with perjury during the divorce or after?
