Divorce. The definition of divorce is when a marriage is terminated or when the bonds of matrimony is dissolved. Divorce is never an easy task. It is always an emotional rollercoaster for all parties involved. Often the spouses have children which they need to take into consideration when they are making a decision concerning a divorce. Children don’t often understand the concept of divorce and usually take the matter very personally. Scheepers and Pretorius Attorneys can assist you with your divorce and are highly skilled to ensure that the legal matter isn’t dragged out.
Division of property.Division of property is a judicial division of property rights and obligations between spouses during a divorce. Assets are usually joint and during the divorce the assets have to be separated equally between the parties involved. Division of property can become a very sensitive subject to the parties involved if the issue is not attended to with a fair vote on both parties.
Domestic violence. Domestic violence is the act of violent, aggressive, abusive, often harmful behaviour which happens within a home between family members. Domestic violence can encompass verbal, sexual, emotional or physical abuse. The devastating effects of domestic violence can have emotional and psychological consequences on the victim for a lifetime. Scheepers and Pretorius Attorneys will help the victim achieve justice and will allow compensation on long lasting emotional effects.
Child maintenance. Children have rights that need to be adhered to and are entitled to a reasonable amount of maintenance to provide for education, clothing, food, medical care etc. It is the responsibility of both parents to ensure that the rights of their children are adhered to and the parents must understand that they are personally liable for their children in their own capacity. A portion of money will need to be paid monthly to the primary parent upon the divorce. Custody battles can also be emotionally draining and the spouse looking to gain primary custody will need an attorney to fight the custody battle.
