"Reform of the Law of Domicile"

CF Forsyth, 1977

The author highlights certain changes brought about by the New Zealand Domicile Act 1976, most notably the abolition of the wife’s domicile of dependence, new provisions in respect of the domicile of children and the abolition of the revival of the domicile of origin. Although there may be choice of law problems where spouses have different domiciles, the conclusion is that South African law could benefit from similar reforms.
