maintenance to children

  • maintenance to students web

    The answer to this question is not a simple one

    At The Legal Advice Office; we receive daily inquiries on a number of issues which affect the daily lives of the people around us.

    On Friday we received the following question and query and will answer it in this blog.

    “I have been divorced for some years now and have been paying maintenance to my ex-wife and my two children for a five of years; ever since our divorce was finalised in the High Court in Cape Town in 2013. My eldest son has now finished school and he wants to go to university. My ex-wife is now insisting that I must contribute to his university studies as part of my maintenance obligations. Surely now that he is an adult and eighteen years old, my responsibility to maintain him will have stopped?”
