Cohabitation: domestic interdicts
Section 31: Domestic interdicts
50.This section introduces into the 1981 Act the concept of “domestic interdicts” which will apply to unmarried cohabitants, either opposite-sex or same-sex. Domestic interdicts will have much the same effect in relation to cohabitants as matrimonial interdicts have for married couples with similar scope as is defined in section 10, above. Subsection (3) introduces into the 1981 Act two new sections relating to domestic interdicts. Subsection (18A) describes what a domestic interdict is, who it will apply to and what the scope of such an interdict is. Subsection (18B) provides further detail as to the application of domestic interdicts.
