Can my child become a foreign national without my consent?

A couple of times a year we get an inquiry along these lines and we had one during this last week; so let’s try to answer the client’s question for you.

Below is the actual question:

 “I am a recently divorced mother and I want to permanently relocate to Australia with my minor child as I have obtained a wonderful work opportunity in Sydney; which will benefit both myself in the long term and my child eventually.

However, my ex, the father of my child, refuses to give his consent, despite the fact that the child resides permanently with me in terms of our divorce order.

The question is do I need his consent in writing or otherwise to take my son with me to Australia?”

However, there are certain safety requirements which must be complied with.

What are they?

A swimming pool can represent a very real safety risk, and many a swimming pool owner has experienced a near drowning.

It is for this reason that the legislature has seen fit to provide regulations that govern the safe operation of swimming pools.

Expropriation without Compensation: Part 2:

We continue where we left off last week with a continuation of the interpretation of section 25 of the Constitution.

Section 25 subsection 4 reads:

“For the purposes of this subsection:-

  • (a) The public interest includes the nation’s commitment to land reform and to reforms to bring about equitable access to all South Africa’s natural resources; and
  • (b) Property is not limited to land.”
