Battle of the Exes

Our courts have a duty to place the best interest of children first. Unfortunately, this is not always a duty parents take seriously with some often letting personal feelings get in the way and using their kids as pawns in their ongoing battles with their exes.

The Pretoria High Court sent a strong message today that this behaviour is unacceptable, by sentencing a mother to 30 days in jail for denying her ex-husband access to their 3-year-old. The punishment was suspended for five years, as long as the mother allowed her ex-husband access.

In 2011, the mom and her ex entered into a divorce settlement agreement, which was made a binding order of court. They agreed that the child’s dad could see his son every second weekend and during holidays, but despite attempts to exercise his right, the mother outright refused. Consequently,  the mother was found to be in contempt of court for failing to comply with the order.

  1. My daughter is 24 and wants nothing to do with me. She was taken from me by her dad (narcissist) and her grandpa with all the money. I want her to know this is not what I wanted. I tried mailing her court documents to show her the proof how her dad kept her away and refused me my visits back in 2001. Should I just let this go ?


    1. Hi Donna, Sorry to here about your situation. I think at 24 your daughter is probably aware of the truth. We all have choices in life, it depends whether or not your daughter wants a relationship with you! You have sent her the evidence, she knows the truth, its not a question of letting it go its discovering if you and your daughter want a relationship. Good luck
