Navigating the Complexities of Divorce Proceedings: Key Issues to Consider:
You will probably encounter a number of significant concerns as an adult South African going through divorce that will necessitate legal counsel. These include dividing your assets and debts, figuring out how much support each party will receive, and making crucial decisions regarding the upbringing of any minor children. Although the procedure can be psychologically and emotionally taxing, it’s crucial to be aware of your rights and obligations. This includes allocating assets, choosing the person who will be responsible for providing support, and deciding where any minor children would live in their principal residence. Determining who will be responsible for making decisions regarding the children’s care and how much each partner will contribute financially is also crucial. You can negotiate these complicated concerns and work towards a solution that is in your best interest with the assistance of an experienced lawyer.
There are two ways to proceed with a divorce, namely:
- Uncontested Divorce is a divorce where the parties have agreed on all relevant terms of the divorce.
- Contested Divorce is a divorce where the parties are unable to agree on the terms of the divorce. The Court is then asked to make a decision.
An uncontested divorce is much cheaper and quicker than a contested divorce.
