Non Maintenance Payment – Warrant of Arrest
My ex had not paid maintenance for his 2 kids sins May 2016, I have in the interim lost our family home of 14 years & basically walked away with nothing, I am renting a 2 bedrrom place for myself, teenage daughter & teenage son, since May 2016 I haven’t received a cent child support, I am battling to keep a roof over our heads, my ex bears no consequence to this, apprently he isn’t working & stays with his sister, they stay in Secunda so I have no way of actually finding out if he is working as I am in P.E. & his sister will also lie & say he isn’t working if he actually is. Is there by any means I can have a warrant of arrest issued for him without having to go see a lawyer, I am in no position to pay for a laywer,legal aid can’t assist me as I earn more than R7500.00, but my gross salary is only R15000.00 per month so I have no money left at the end of each month.
Please guide me on this
If I am correct, my understanding of your question is that there is an existing maintenance order granted by the court which your Ex is not complying with. If that is the case, you have to lay a criminal charge at the police station for violation of a court order. You see, it is a criminal offence not to pay maintenance. Thank you.
