Good Day, I trust that my email finds you well. To give you a breakdown of how my divorce went is as follows. I presented the papers at the Court on the 08th of July 2022 and took the papers to the Sheriff to serve summons the same day. Defendant was served on the 14th of July 2022 and I collected the return of service on the 20th of July 2022 and took it back to Court to get a date. A date was given for the 27th of July 2022 and on that day the divorce was granted. Definitely got divorced with ease and thank you so much for your professional and thorough service in this regard. Thank you and Kind regards.

Frequently Asked Questions

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,
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 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,
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. 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.

-- Helena Snyman
@Helena, That ia an extremely loaded question which we will gladly answer with more information from you. In essence it will boil down to a 50/50 division of the joint estate, unless the parties agree otherwise. 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

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.

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.
-- diylaw Administrator
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
