Rule 43 – Understanding Holding Patterns in Divorce

Rule 43 was intended to afford litigants in divorce a speedy and expeditious procedure to deal with interim matters.

In South African Divorce Law, Rule 43 is an expeditious and robust high court application, which is designed to, by means of an interim court order, give rise to a tenable and fair temporary status quo in respect of maintenance, legal costs, and care and contact of minor children pending finalization of the litigation in divorce matters.

In this 1-hour webinar, Attorney, Mervyn Vermeulen, introduces viewers to Rule 43 Applications and their unique quirks and characteristics.
