There is absolutely no way that your partner will be able to obtain the sole care of your children, unless it is in their interest. The interests of the children is paramount in any decision regarding their care. Altough he might have parental rights in terms of the Children's Act, this doesn't mean by implication that he will obtain care over them. The court will look at all the facts applicable before making any decision, thus, the threat of putting you in jail should rather be seen as a form of abuse. I suggest that you consult with an attorney.
