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

Hi there Many thanks for assisting us with our divorce, it was finalised last September without any issues. PLEASE can you advise if it’s necessary to go to home affairs to change our status. We have gone a couple of times but the queues are impossible. I will be remarrying the end of the year and want to ensure that everything is in order before then. Many thanks again for all your help and guidance.

a heartfelt thank you to everyone at diylaw. I would have rated you 10/10, but then Covid happened. Admittedly, the problem was with the sheriff and court, but I commend you for doing your best during trying times and always answering my many questions. Top job!

Magda, We will send an email to you directly in reply to your query. 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.
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,
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,
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,
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,
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.

Firstly, i want to thank Riaan and team for a super great service, i am happily divorced. I just want find out, now that we are divorced and my ex-husband was paying maitenance to his other kids, looks like he stopped and now the mother of the other child wants to summon me for maintenance. What are my legal rights?
-- Nokhaya
Nokhaya, Thank you for your comment, it is highly appreciated. The answer to your question is quite uncomplicated. You have no maintenance obligation to another woman's child, even if that child is with your husband, not even to mention if you are divorced from him. The mother of the child has no claim against you and her threats to do so is opportunistic to say the least. Regards

-- Bianca
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

Hi, I need to find out, if we are married out of community of property, but the house is registered in both our names before we got married, what happens then?
-- CMF Vermeulen
@Vermeulen I have sent you an email to discuss the situation in person. Ultimately you and your spouse can agree to many different scenarios, failing which I will discuss the legal position with you. I trust that you find it in order. Regards.

Big big Thank you to the DIYLaw team. I must admit that moment when I pushed the 'pay button' my heart stood still.... praying that I made the right choice and that my money did not just vanish into the unknown. You returned my email within 10 minutes. I was so relieved. After al the sad and bad it was a bit of hope that things will be ok! Every detail and explanation helped me to within one week finalize the paperwork and collect a court date. If you are a potential client and like me pondering the option of using this company you can go for it and push thay 'pay' button! Take the first step! Its worth the effort. Again thank you DIYLaw.
-- Zelda
@Zelda, Thank you so much for the great feedback. We are glad to know that the process is going seamlessly. Regards
