Good morning Thank you so much for the follow up. The divorce went through without a single glitch. Your step by step guide is excellent. The marriage was successfully dissolved on the 29th of September 2022, the divorce decree should be ready by now but I will only collect it at the end of this month. Once again thank you for your help. Regards Wandile

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
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,

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.

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

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.

-- 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. 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.

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
