Question posted in the Family Law category relating to Gauteng
1. Does miswriting a contract void the particular clause?My husband has a filed parenting plan with his ex, we planned a family visit to Nelspruit this weekend we live in Gauteng.
His ex planned my stepson’s half-sisters birthday on our weekend and then sent us a message stating that
"D will not be going to nelspruit with you as he wants to be at his sisters birthday and to be fair you also didnt give me notice as per the parenting agreement"
Parenting plan wording:“Both parties shall furnish the other party with twenty days notice, save in exceptional circumstances of his /her intention to take the minor child on a holiday within gauteng but within the republic of south africa and ....”
It should say outside Gauteng
2. Is a family visit seen as a holiday by the court?She take my stepson to weekend weddings and outings outside of Gauteng, should she then give us notice of this as well?

No, it does not void the clause. If it is a common mistake, then you must just agree to be bound to the real wording. Otherwise you must apply to court to remedy the wording.
