Vermeulen Attorneys Are Open For Business During the National Lock-Down

Our President has on 23 March 2020 announced that South Africa will as of Friday 27 March 2020, be entering a 21(twenty-one) day lockdown.

What happens to the contact rights with my child(ren) during the Coronavirus country wide lockdown

“My name is Paul. My wife and I are divorced, and we have a shared residency regime with our minor child. President Ramaphosa announced the country wide lockdown from the 26th of March 2020 until the 16th of April 2020. I read your previous article about contact rights during the Coronavirus lockdown, but I was wondering if the government has released any regulations to govern this position? How do we continue to share contact with our child during this time? Can I drive to her place to see and fetch my child when it is my days to spend time with him?
