Divorce

The decision to divorce your spouse is a difficult & emotional process. Spouses can choose how they want to get divorced – the divorce process is either uncontested/unopposed or contested/opposed.

Uncontested Divorce

It is advisable for spouses to choose an uncontested/unopposed divorce, as there is no formal trial and it is the less expensive divorce process. This divorce process is where both spouses agree on the terms of the divorce and we will draft a settlement agreement/consent paper for both parties to sign. If there are children involved we will also draft a parenting plan.

We offer a fast & affordable online uncontested divorce service for local & international clients. No need for face to face consultation, you only appear in Court to finalise the divorce.

Our all-inclusive fee for uncontested divorces are:

  • Local uncontested divorce is R8,500 if you live in the Western Cap
  • Local uncontested divorce is R10,500 if you live in another province
  • International uncontested divorce is R14,500 if one spouse lives in a foreign country
Process:
  1. We will email you a divorce questionnaire for completion & a mandate confirming the all inclusive fee.

  2. We will attend to the FICA requirements.

  3. Once you make payment of the deposit we will draft and provide you with the draft papers to review & attend to signing with the spouses.
