Uncontested and Contested Divorce in South Africa

Uncontested divorce in South Africa

First of all, what is an uncontested divorce?

An uncontested divorce occurs when both parties agree to the divorce. This type of divorce is quicker, less expensive, and simpler. A formal trial is not necessary, but legal guidance may still be necessary. Other factors, such as child custody, child support, and asset division, may be relevant to the divorce but do not necessarily slow down the process. The legal expert must assist the parties in reaching a legal agreement.

How long does a divorce take in South Africa?

This a common question we’re often faced with when dealing with divorce matters. Unfortunately, some divorces are more complex in which the other party is not co-operating and refuse to agree to a divorce. Under such circumstances, the divorce can unfold over years depending on the nature and circumstance of the matter.

Contested or opposed divorces on the other hand, are when both parties are not in agreement with the divorce – this can cause a dreadful, costly legal drag.  The contested divorce will unfold in the following ways:


  • pleadings
  • application for and set down of trial date
  • discovery of documents
  • further discovery and particulars
  • pre-trial conference
  • trial
  • judgment
