Exploitation in child support, The Upside, Channel Africa, 9 May 2024
The issue of exploitation in child support is a complex matter that has many dimensions and far-reaching implications beyond financial matters. Parents may exploit the system to avoid fulfilling their responsibilities and children may become pawns in custody battles.

We follow a case where The High Court in Pretoria rejected a mother's claim for an increase in child maintenance from R28 500 to R35 629,42 per month, which also included a retroactive claim amounting to a total of R234,000. The High Court declined the mother's application, despite the existing R28 500 monthly support from her estranged husband.

To further unpack we talk Kamogelo Lekubu-Wilderson, Director of Maintenance Services at the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development.

INTERVIEW: A look at the work of the Master of the High Court, The View Point, SAFM, 29 Apr 2024
Guest: Ms Hester Venter , Deputy Master of the North Gauteng
Across South Africa, offices of the master of the high court are buckling, and attorneys who must deal with them daily are at their wits’ end. Lawyers are increasingly expressing dissatisfaction with the deepening dysfunctionality of the offices of the Master of the High Court. They highlight that the Master’s Office is causing significant delays, lasting months or even years, for crucial legal administrative procedures that should ideally be completed within weeks. The Master’s Office is responsible for overseeing numerous legal processes, including the winding up of estates of the deceased, handling bankruptcy and liquidation matters, and managing hundreds of millions of rands for the Guardian’s Fund. We find out more on the state of the Masters cause, and the offices plans to address this administrative nightmare.
