My son is 15yrs old turning 16yrs Mar09.and wants to stay with his father. I have full custody. His father pays R400 per month and the child is on his Medical Aid. I pay for everything else concerning the childs needs. Do I have to pay maintenance if my son moves to his father? the father never paid maintenance for 5 years.....can I claim for those 5 years he never paid?
Please advice.
