The Divorce Process

To begin the divorce process you need to have a summons served by the sheriff of the court. The divorce may be completed in either the Regional Court of the Magistrate Court having jurisdiction in your area or in the High Court. Two types of divorce currently exist, uncontested and contested divorce.

Division of Assets

The nature of your matrimonial property regime will determine how your assets will be divided in the unfortunate event of a divorce. There are two primary contracts, marriage in community of property and Marriage out of community of property. Both of which have stipulations on dividing assets.

Trusts

Frequently during the divorce process and litigation thereof, a common issue that arises is whether assets held in a trust should be included or excluded when attempting to determine the estate of the parties involved during the divorce. If you would like to discuss any concerns regarding trusts and divorce, we are here to help.
