An uncontested divorce is without a doubt the quickest, cheapest and simplest way to get a divorce in South Africa. An uncontested divorce can be finalised within a matter of weeks as opposed to a contested divorce that can take 2 to 3 years.
For a divorce to be categorized as an uncontested divorce it would of necessity mean that you and your spouse agree on all of the terms of your divorce.
Let’s start by giving you an idea of what needs to be agreed upon in order for you to move your divorce on an uncontested basis:
- Proprietary aspects : this would be the division of property (your marital regime would regulate how the assets will be divided);
- Maintenance in respect of the minor or adult dependent children;
- Spousal maintenance if applicable; and
- Contact and care of the children.
Should there be one or two issues that you and your spouse do not agree on, then a mediation session or two should assist you in coming to a fair compromise. Once agreement is reached on all issues, we simply continue with the uncontested divorce process.
