Question posted in the General Law category relating to Western Cape
Good day, thank you for your time attending to my query. I would like to understand what alternative options I may have available to me should I be unable to attend court for a restraining order request. I have tried contacting the magistrates court, the police station and the high court for assistance to no avail. I am unable to book flights to return to Johannesburg from Cape Town to attend.
please advise. Kind regards.
