Single parents (moms and dads) open up about legal battles, maintenance woes
Single-parent homes are a rising reality in South Africa.
It is said that single parent families are one of the fastest growing types of families.
This is due to changing financial and social dynamics, explains family law attorney Graham Warrender.
He says both mothers and fathers are taking on single parent roles, as a result of separation, divorce, death and other circumstances.
Warrender speaks about the effects of single parenting on children, child maintenance rights and the legalities of raising kids under joint custody.
He says that is important, where possible, for both parents to be present in a child's life.
