A maintenance order that has been issued in South Africa can be enforced in the
foreign country where the maintenance defaulter lives if it is a ‘proclaimed country’
(including countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada, United States of
America, United Kingdom, Singapore, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Malawi,
Namibia, Kenya and Hong Kong). The maintenance order will be sent to the relevant
authority in the proclaimed country, so that it may be enforced. If you have a
provisional maintenance order, it must be confirmed before it can be enforced.
