I needed to get a divorce done as a matter of urgency towards the end of 2021. I was quoted over R 8 000.00 by a local attorney, something I could never afford. I came across Cawood Attorneys offering a DIY Divorce service. I was a bit hesitant at first, thinking that the process would be too complicated for me to handle on my own and would take very long. I can honestly say that the process was simple. The documents were sent to me and I followed the steps which were provided in a very clear and concise manner. I completed the full process of getting the documents signed, delivered and returned to me within 10 days including receiving the return of service from the Sheriff. I handed in my documents at the court and got a court date. Within 2.5 months my divorce was granted. Thank you to all the staff at Cawood Attorneys for the amazing service and support. I will recommend their services to anyone wanting to get a divorce done quickly, efficiently and at an affordable price. Kind regards

Frequently Asked Questions

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.
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.

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,

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,
