Good Day I have received the “return of service” as well as “endorsement letter by the Family Advocate”. Tomorrow I’m going back to the Clerk of the Court for final documentation / Court Date etc. Thank you again for your assistance in this regard.

Great service. Cawood Attorneys also helped me a lot when I got stuck. Much cheaper than appointing a private attorney. Happily divorced!

Good day, I would like to say thank you very much for the quick and professional service from you guys. I went to court today, and all my documents were 100% correct because of the clear instructions and answering of all my questions. I went to the sheriff as well and are awaiting the documents to be served, and then I will get a court date. A divorce is stressfull in itself, and I would like to thank you for making this part so much easier than expected. Kind Regrads

Frequently Asked Questions

Good evening I would like to have some help to get divorce just to say that I do have 2minors one 11 and the other 14 I understand the fees upfront are almost900 and the 150 for the Sherrif to deliver plse if any assistance is available.
Christine, Indeed the R890 is payable, where after you will immediately receive login details to proceed with the online divorce application. I will provide you with more information per email. Regards,
Hi, By using this service am I still required to go to court ?
You will have to attend Court. The good news is that you receive a step by step guide to ensure that all is ready for your Court appearance and it is not something that you should be concerned about.
I am married out of community of property and my wife is claiming maintenance. We have no children together, no assets or liabilities, and she has always worked, and I have never paid maintenance to her. I live in Mozambique, and do not have a South African bank account, but her attorneys are demanding information regarding my status in Mozambique, including a list of my assets, etc. Please advise what your charge would be to attend to this matter. We were previously with another attorney, but they withdrew from this case with no prior notice, and we believe that there is a court ruling to pay maintenance, which we were not aware of until this month.
Ian, This is not a matter that DIY Law can assist with, you require the assistance of an attorney. Riaan Scheepers from Cawood Attorneys will send you a direct email. Regards,
Good day Please can you provide me with a telephone no as i got some questions i need clarification on. Kind regards
Sharon, I will send a email to you with the relevant information. Regards,
My girlfriend wants to divorce but she doesn't have any stable job yet is it possible to get get her some help so the divorce can be done faste she is willing to pay but dont have the money all at once.
Ruan, We will be able to assist your girlfriend with her divorce. Unfortunately the DIY Law program is set up in such a way that the payment of R890 must be made at once to proceed with the online divorce application. There is not an option to pay in installments at this point in time. Regards,
Hi If i make of your services and there are no contesting or policies or children or any assets involved and both parties agree to set out documents. How long will the divorce take to go through.
Because you handle the divorce yourself, it will depend on the time you take to follow the step by step guide that will be provided to you. It also depends on where the court dates of your local court is. It shouldn't however take more than 2-3 months to finalise. It can be much sooner though.

What happens if i meet up into a accident and claim fo RAF and my wife decides to divorce me. Can she take half of my RAF money.
-- Angelo
@Angelo, Having regard to your question I assume that you are married in community of property. Only funds paid for patrimonial damages falls into the joint estate and can be claimed by your spouse ie. damage related to your financial position. Non-patrimonial damages does not form part of your joint estate and cannot be claimed by your spouse ie. damages relating to pain and suffering. Regards

Thank you for your comment. I have replied to your query to your email address due to the fact that you ask a loaded question. You are free to move where you want pending the divorce (right to freedom of movement). Just take note that the court you will use for the divorce must be where you reside at the time that the divorce is instituted. Regards
