Family law expert
Both parents are co-guardians of their minor child, as provided in sub-sections 18 (2)(c), 18 (4) and 18 (5) of the Children’s Act 38 of 2005. The parents are also co-holders of parental responsibilities and rights in respect of their child as referred to in sections 18(2)(a) and 18(2)(b) of the Children’s Act 38 of 2005. I suggest that you approach the Family Advocate's Office in order for them to facilitate the implementation of a parenting plan whereby you are the parent of primary residence and the father the parent of alternate residence.
I would also suggest that you go to the maintenance court and start proceedings to obtain a maintenance order.
