The High Court in (unreported case no 61876/2012, 9-5-2014) (GP) (Hiemstra AJ) handed down a far-reaching judgment affecting the rights of maintenance creditors. The issue in dispute was the negligent conduct of the maintenance officials at a particular magistrate's court which resulted in the plaintiff (the mother of the children entitled to the maintenance benefit) not being able to attach a pension benefit paid to the debtor (the father). This note briefly examines the significance of the judgment and its practical consequences.
