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!

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,
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, 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,
Goeie dag ek en my man wil skei ons het 'n skikking opgetrek tussen ons. Maar ek weet nie hoe om verder te gaan met die hof en dagvaardiging nie. kan u asb advise gee ons bly in Dinwiddie Germiston. Magda
Magda, We will send an email to you directly in reply to your query. 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.

I am trying to track down my certificate after DIY divorce through you guys in 2012. How do I start?
-- John Bennett
@ John Bennett, you should be able to obtain a re-issue of your divorce order from the court where you were divorced. We will communicate with you further via email. 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.

-- Angela Fortune
Angela, Thank you for your comment. It does not seem as if your divorce will be uncontested, and as such you will not qualify for a DIY Law Online Divorce. You are welcome to contact Riaan Scheepers @ Cawood Attorneys for assistance in the matter. Regards

We are about to start the process of divorce and my wife doesn't want me to touch her pension fund. I am the one paying for the house and wish to keep it and leave her pension fund alone and still give her part of my pension fund. We only have one child who is 29yrs and married. Please give best advice.
-- Lamo
Thank you for your comment. It is possible that you retain the immovable property in lieu of not claiming 50% of your wife's pension benefit (assuming that you are married in community of property) as long as both parties agree to it and signs such a settlement agreement. You are welcome to phone us to discuss the matter in more detail. Regards
