Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the grounds for divorce in South Africa?

In South Africa, there are several grounds on which a divorce can be sought. The recognized grounds for divorce in South Africa include the irretrievable breakdown of a marriage, continuous unreasonable behavior of a spouse, separation or desertion, and mental illness of a marriage partner.

2. How long does the divorce process take?

The duration of the divorce process in South Africa can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the case, the level of cooperation between the parties, and the workload of the court. Generally, an uncontested divorce where the spouses agree on all terms can be finalized relatively quickly (4 to 12 months), while contested divorces that involve disputes over various issues may take longer.

3. Can I get a divorce if my spouse does not agree?

Yes, it is possible to get a divorce even if your spouse does not agree. However, the process may be more complicated and may require court intervention.

4. How is property divided in a divorce?

Property is divided according to the principles of equitable distribution (dividing the assets and liabilities in a manner that is fair and just). This means that the court will consider various factors, such as the duration of the marriage, the contributions of each spouse, any prenuptial agreements or postnuptial agreements, and the needs and circumstances of both partners.

5. What happens to child custody and support in a divorce?

The court will consider the best interests of the child in determining custody and support arrangements. The court may also consider factors such as the child's age, health, and relationship with each parent.

6. Can I change my divorce settlement after it has been finalized?

It is possible to change a divorce settlement, but it can be difficult. You would need to show that there has been a significant change in circumstances since the settlement was finalized.

7. How much does it cost to hire a divorce attorney?

The cost of hiring a divorce attorney varies depending on the complexity of your divorce case and the experience level of your attorney. We offer competitive rates and will provide you with a clear understanding of our fees upfront.
