HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The divorce process will take between 1 – 2 months to conclude from date of receiving the signed settlement agreement.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
For the online divorce we charge an all-inclusive fee of R9,000.00 (this includes disbursements such as advocate’s costs and sheriff’s fees).
NEED MORE INFORMATION?
Complete the questionnaire, which records your personal information as well as the terms of your divorce. At the end of the questionnaire, you will have the option of recording any terms that were not catered for in the questionnaire.
At the end of the questionnaire, upload a copy of your marriage certificate, an Antenuptial Contract (if you are married out of community of property), an identity document or passport, and proof of your residential address.
After you submit the questionnaire you will be required to pay a deposit of R4,500.00. This will cover the cost of us opening a file for you, preparing your settlement agreement, and all attendances up until the point where you are provided with the settlement agreement.
We will draft your settlement agreement, which will be sent to you via email. You have the option of deciding whether you want one of our professionals to phone you after you have received the settlement agreement in order to go over it with you.
You and your spouse must sign the settlement agreement and return the original to our offices.
The second payment (R4,500.00) will be required once the settlement agreement is signed and returned to our office.
We will attend to all the procedural requirements necessary in order to set your matter down at Court and will inform you of the Court date.
On the day of the divorce being finalised, we will accompany you to Court and explain exactly what needs to be done on the day. Should there be no minor children born from the marriage it will not be necessary to attend court, however, an affidavit will need to be filed to this effect. We will prepare this for you.
Once we receive the Divorce Order from Court, we will provide you with a copy thereof. You can also choose for us to send the original certified copy to you via registered mail.
