Thank you DIY LAW. I finalised my divorce yesterday and it was a breeze. Just a pity about the level of helpfulness one receives from the court officials sometimes? All in all a good experience!

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,
Good day Please can you provide me with a telephone no as i got some questions i need clarification on. Kind 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.
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,

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

-- Gill
That is strange. I will contact you directly to ascertain how you completed the test and what the problem may be. Regards

-- 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.

Will you be able to assist even thou I am already Divorced 3 month's ago. We were only married for 6 month's when we got married she had no car, just a few furniture not even working. Now she want's a car my house and cash Please can you assist
-- Steph
Steph, Thank you for your comment. If you are already divorced DIY LAw will not be able to assist you. It seems however as if you have certain post-divorce issues, kindly contact Riaan Scheepers @ Cawood Attorneys for assistance in the matter. Regards
-- diylaw Administrator
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
-- diylaw Administrator
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.
