NATIONAL PROSECUTING ATUHORITY COMMUNITY DIALOGUE
On 26 March 2022 the Clinic attended the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) Community Dialogue on the Maintenance Act, 99 of 1998, as held at the NPA offices in Cape Town. The dialogue strengthens the existing knowledge of professional legal bodies on important topics related to maintenance with the aim of improving and expediting service delivery to clients. The topics included the claiming of maintenance from deceased estates, mediation in a maintenance setting, drafting of parenting plans, variation of maintenance orders and financial abuse. The dialogue is held monthly and focuses on new topics each month. We are excited to host the dialogue in the near future.
