Question posted in the Family Law category relating to KwaZulu-Natal
My partner has 2 children from a previous relationship. Due to the trying times of COVID he lost his job and became unemployed, therefore being unable to pay maintenance for 3 or so months. The matter was discussed with the mother of the children and there was the understanding established that when he gets reemployed that he could restart maintenance. He saw his kids In January over a weekend, and since then she has kept them away from him, no contact, no visitations and no real explanation as to why. I want to find out his rights going forward and how this issue can be resolved, ending upwith him being able to see him children on a regular basis? I also want to make it known that there is now legal agreement between the two of them with regards to visitation etc, so what is the next step forward?
