The application was made 4 years ago for regular payments. These were relative to 2011. The claim though is no longer relevant, as I have been paying for the last 4 years. it's just taken 4 years for it to be processed. I have to appear in court on the 10th June 2015.
She filed the Application for Maintenance Order in South Africa on 24-06-2011. Enclosed with the Notice of Proceedings I received in the post are copies of these documents, confirming this. I have to appear at West London Family Court.
The claim was for R3500 per month which she back dated to Jan 2011 going forward indefinitely.
R3500 x 6.
Just to be clear, she is not still expecting this money. As far as we are concerned, there are no arrears. Due to the fact that she hadn't heard a thing regarding her claim, she assumed it would never materialise and forgot about it.
Given that it's taken 4 years to get to my mailbox, even if she went to cancel the whole thing, it is extremely unlikely it would get to West London Family Court in time.
Which brings me to my original question, can I provide this information and all proof to the relevant department and avoid going through the whole process and possible expense of court or do I have to go to court?
Final clarification: How do I ask for an Adjournment, do I have to go to court on the 10th June?
