Uncontested divorce in South Africa
First of all, what is an uncontested divorce?
An uncontested divorce is a divorce in which both parties are in agreement with. Divorces of this nature takes less time and money and allows parties to pick up the pieces and move on with their lives quicker. The procedure for unopposed or uncontested divorces are simpler and straight to the point. Because both parties are already in agreement of the divorce, a formal trial is not necessary but the guidance of a legal expert may still be important.
There may well be other factors relevant to the divorce, such as child custody, child maintenance and splitting of assets. This may not necessary slow down the process but the legal expert will have to work at helping the parties reach a common ground legally.

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:
- application for and set down of trial date
- discovery of documents
- further discovery and particulars
- pre-trial conference
