Drunken driving 2

 The reality is that the arrest of a person doesn’t necessarily only happen to violent or hardened criminals

Below is an email to The Legal Advice Office from last Thursday.

 “ The son of a friend of mine was arrested two weekends ago In Rondebosch (Cape Town) for drunk driving and this has been quite a traumatic experience for her and her family to get their son released on bail. I have to admit I know nothing about bail or the bail process and I am worried that I won’t know what to do if, heaven forbid, my own child be arrested on some future occasion.

Please advise as to how bail works and what one needs to know and do in these circumstances.”

travellers marriage

A “traveller’s marriage” may seem romantic, but can quickly turn into a nightmare! 

 As the world gets smaller and smaller and global movement increases, an “international wedding” becomes a much greater reality for many couples.

From the beach wedding in Mauritius to the castle wedding in Ireland or the Tuscan wedding in Italy.

These are all distinct possibilities if one can afford it.

This international marriage or “traveller’s marriage” may seem romantic, but can quickly turn into a nightmare when questions regarding the matrimonial property regime of the parties are raised at the time of a divorce or the death of one of the parties to the marriage.

The question arises as to which legal regime governs the marriage: the country where they were married, the home country of a spouse, or the country in which the couple reside? Left in the air, the romantic traveller’s marriage could very well turn into a wearisome ball and chain and legal nightmare.

residential house lease cancel

One has to draw a clear distinction between lease agreements for residential properties and those that are for commercial properties

We received the following in an email this last week.

“I signed a 2-year lease agreement with my landlord on the 27th February 2018 and the lease agreement came into effect on the 1st March this year. I simply cannot afford the rent and I wrote to my landlord on the 29th June cancelling the lease and requesting repayment of my security deposit of R 28000.00. He has refused to refund me. What can I do?”
