Divorce Cases

Divorces It is a well-known fact that many of the marriages in South Africa today eventually comes to an end by way of divorce proceedings. Although divorce proceedings are generally not a pleasant experience for either of the parties, it is sometimes the only way for both of the parties to pursue a new beginning and happier life. This does not mean that anyone who is not quite happy in their marriage may approach the Court for a degree of divorce. Generally speaking, in the South African law, the Court must be convinced that the marriage relationship between the parties has broken down to such an extent that there is no reasonable prospect of a normal marriage relationship. Thus if it can be proved to the Court that the marriage relationship between the parties has broken down and that there is no reasonable prospect of a normal marriage relationship, the Court must grant an order of divorce.

 

If there is minor or dependentchildren born of the marriage issues such as custody and maintenance of the minor children will form an important part of the divorce proceedings. The Court will not grant a degree of divorce unless the Court is satisfied that the provisions regarding the welfare of minor or dependent children will reflect the best interest of the said children. Therefore complexity of each case as well as the costs and time it will require to finalise each case, will most likely depend on the particular facts and circumstances of each case.
