I wish this was in place way back when my children's father refused to pay maintenance and got away with it.
Kevin Sadie via citypress.co.za
It won't work. Should the parent be retrenched or dismissed then the child will not get maintenance. Most companies don't hire people who are blacklisted.

Maintenance should be paid but at the same time the father's rights to his kids should also be looked at. As it stands, it's pathetic. I pay my maintenance while some other guy spends more time with my son and I don't have much say in the matter. Faith Keabetswe Leburu via citypress.co.za You cannot default on maintenance it's that simple. You can default on your clothing accounts/ personal loans/ car instalment but not maintenance coz that child suffers as a result. @debruin_piet I think any parent who doesn't want take care of their children must be locked up. That would solve this problem effectively.
