[D171] THE COSTS OF A DIVORCE IN SOUTH AFRICA
In South Africa, should spouses not wish to be married any longer, they have the option to dissolve their marriage relationship by a divorce. This video covers how much a divorce will cost in South Africa.
Contested vs uncontested divorce
A contested divorce is one where the parties involved cannot reach an agreement on key considerations, such as the division of major assets like property or child care and contact, are disputed. In this situation, the divorce goes to trial and the judge becomes the arbiter. If the divorce is contested and the spouses cannot agree, the divorce costs can go up exponentially.
An uncontested divorce is a much more peaceable course of action and one that leaves everyone’s dignity intact. In this scenario, the two of you agree between yourselves how assets will be divided (bearing in mind the marital regime) and, if there are children, how they will be cared for. Normally a parenting plan is developed and this becomes part of your divorce settlement.
