South African divorce law

Quick divorce in South Africa

Having a quick divorce is one thing. But being by the financial means however, is another aspect. Divorces are never easy by virtue of the fact that it either involves children or assets that needs to be divided up equally. This in itself, also depends on whether the couple had an Ante-Nuptial Contract, also known as “ANC” in place and whether they are married in, or out of community of property.

Our law offices encountered a number of divorce cases of a complex nature which requires litigation in the High Courts of South Africa – the emotional and financial strain can be unbearable on the parties involved.

In essence, it is safe to say that in our books, “quick divorces” does not exist unless it is an uncontested or unopposed divorce. In layman’s terms, this is a divorce that neither parties oppose and both parties are in agreement of the divorce. Under these circumstances, a divorce can be relatively quick. Our law offices are able to deal with unopposed divorces within a matter of three weeks.

Furthermore, a contested divorce may even take years and the period of time it takes for a divorce to be finalized in the High Courts, depends on the overly burdened court rolls in which parties have to wait long for their divorce to go to trial.

South African divorce law – married in community of property

First of all, when two parties get married without an Ante-Nuptial Contract, then they are automatically married in community of property. What is meant by this?

Well, to put it simply, all assets owned by you and your spouse are combined and belong to both of you. Why is this such a bad thing? Well it’s not necessary a bad thing but does call for major financial risks.

One could say that both, married in and out of community of property, has its financial gains and losses. If you are married in community of property, it means that both parties will receive 50% of everything owned. In addition to this, it also means that any debt incurred by your spouse while being married, is your debt as well. In the case of death, assets will be frozen until officials reach a conclusion as to who gets what and how much.
