The process was well explained. The prescribed documents were comprehensive. The divorce court staff were very impressed that I had copies of documents they were even short of. Help was always available via email.

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

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,
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,
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.

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.

We are married in community of property. We don't have minor children. We have agreed that my husband wont have any claim to our house or my provident fund. I will pay his medical aid for 3 years. Will this service work for me?
-- Reinette
Hi Reinette, You will still be able to do the divorce via DIY Law. We will just have to work on the content of the settlement agreement to conform to your specific needs. Regards

-- 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

-- 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

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

I am a very sad and unhappily married woman. I'm married out of community without accrual. Things between us have been bad, we live like housemates, been for years now. My husband is planning on taking a second wife and I asked him to please divorce me if that's what's going to happen but he is refusing. I'm treated like a child and don't have freedom. I need help.
-- Lumka
We will be able to assist you with your divorce. I have already sent you an email requesting your contact details so that we can discuss the matter.

Hi. Not sure if anyone can help. My mother in law and I have paid for the assistance but nothing has been done. We cannot get past step 1. I also cannot get any response from anyone via email. Am not even sure how to get my money reversed. Does anyone know how to help us.
-- Michelle Burgess
Mrs. Burgess, Please email me your contact details to riaan@cawoodlaw.co.za so that we can resolve the issue.

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
-- diylaw Administrator
Just did the test and although we are in agreement to get divorced our diy was declined any specific reason
-- Gill
That is strange. I will contact you directly to ascertain how you completed the test and what the problem may be. Regards
