Good morning.

IN 2009 MY X AND MYSELF GOT DIVORCED FOR DEBT REASONS...WE STILL STAYED TOGETHER UNTIL JANUARY OF THIS YEAR.WE FINALLY PARTED WAYS IN BEGINNING OF FEBRUARY.IN OUR DIVORCE AGREEMENT IT WAS STIPULATED THAT WE HAVE JOINT CUSTODY OF OUR SON AND THAT I HAD TO PAY R2000 a month maintenance and keep him on our medical aid.this morning i did pay the R2000 rand and he is still covered by our medical aid.She says that the R2000 is not enough as there is 6.5% increase each year on the maintenance amount.i have checked our contact but nowhere in the contract is there any stipulation of a yearly increase.
