Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng
Hi i just want to know me and my exgirlfriend live together and we broke up 2 weeks ago and we live in a rental cottage on the landlords property and im the only one on the lease and im renting through a agency and stuff is really hectic in household with her here. We have a child together and she has one of her own she doesn't have a job and doesn't contribute alot eg the rent is 5500 electricity is about 1500-1800 and groceries about 4000 and she only contributes around 1500 to 1800 sometimes. And i told her she has 3 months to get a job and move out just to be nice but she really makes it hard to live with. We had an argument and she says i cant kick her out and that i should try. Is it true what she says?
But im really thinking of telling her to leave month end but i dont want her to leave with my baby boy i can provide for him and im also legal father and on the birth certificate. Is it possible i can keep my boy because of reasons i dont think shell be able to provide for him because she has another child aswel and im providing the four of us?
