Perspective On Y | Discussing child maintenance and finances centered around children’s well-being
Written by YFM on 22nd Oct 2020
YFM, Gauteng’s biggest youth station, will be shedding light on a controversial but vital discussion, child maintenance.
Host of Sunday Feels, Xtremme, together with a panel of experts, will lead the discussion that will focus on South African Family Laws, the rights of a mother, father as well as a child and how these rights are determined by the court.
Listeners will be informed about child visitation, surname changes for children as well as the link between maintenance demand and the role paternity tests play in the process.
Legal experts will divulge how and where to apply for child maintenance, how the amount is determined, what paperwork needs to be submitted to prove how much one can afford to pay and how the child’s monthly expenses are calculated and divided.
Says show host, Xtremme: “Raising a child is the most beautiful and precious thing one can go through, but it has its challenges. One commitment to child care is, maintenance. According to legislation, a child is entitled to reasonable maintenance to provide for clothing, housing, medical care and education, with this said both parents have a duty to maintain the child. Child maintenance is somewhat a difficult topic that in most times, is filled with a lot of disagreements and conflict between co-parents which sadly comes at the cost of the child involved. I plan on making sure the listener learns about the essential facts around child maintenance and the importance of having a healthy co-parenting relationship. As a young father, this subject is close to my heart and I urge you to be part of this conversation.”
