Parental rights in South Africa

The court can grant an order that can limit parental responsibilities and rights, depending on the nature or circumstance of the matter of course. However, when the court does make these changes, they will consider what’s in the child’s best interests.

When terminating parental responsibilities and rights, the court will:

  • What is best for the child rather than parents
  • The relationship between the child and guardian
  • The dedication the guardian has shown to taking care of the child and
  • Other factors that may be relevant to the court.

One thought on “Child custody – What fathers should know – Cape Town South Africa

  1. Hi..
    I am a father to a beautiful little girl Amber-Jade. I fetch her from school everyday at 16:15 and drop her at her mom at 6. She stays by me every Tuesday and every second weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. I pay half her school fees. I also pay her medical aid and swimming lessons. Her mom is really trying to cut out as much time as she can that I spend with my daughter to try and spite me as much as she can which is also spiting my daughter I’m a big way as we have an amazing relationship which she does not like at all. My daughters mom has also been known to have a drug problem and hasn’t had a job in over 6 months. What rights do I have as a good dad with getting full custody of my child as we don’t have a custody arrangement in place? I don’t want my daughter not to see her mom bit just not always on her mom’s terms as she makes it so very hard for me and my daughter. My daughter would prefer to live with me than her mom but would still like to see her mom which I don’t want to stop but her mom pretty much tells me when I can and can’t see my daughter which isn’t fair at all for me and Amber-Jade.
