. I was in court about 2 weeks ago after my ex summonsed me to be there as I could pay for my boys from March as I didn’t have a job and only did jobs here and there. We weren’t in court but went to a person’s office and agreed on, after a bit of fighting, that I would pay R2250 for November and December and then from January I have to pay R7250. I started work at Ford Malalane 30 October 2017 as a new car sales executive and I need to find my feet first as my commission that I will be earning is not big at the moment. For December my commission is R1200 because only one of my cars got invoiced. My rent at the moment is R4500 per month, my food is R1500 and as you can see there’s nothing left this month to pay her. I would like to get medical aid for myself and said I’ll also put my boys on medical aid but my ex said she will put them on her medical aid. My arrears for the schools are very big (I think R75000) and I also need to start paying that off. I don’t know what else to do as I can’t pay what I don’t have yet. I would really like to see and talk to my boys as she is keeping them away from me at the moment because I can’t pay her anything yet. I don’t want to disobey the court and I don’t want to go to jail for not paying.
