Marriage

  • Divorce: Final

    Last time we looked at the Divorce process.

    Today; we give you a short blog to finalise this series of blogs on divorce.

    As pointed out by one of our readers during the course of this week; “Divorce is not for sissies.”

  • Divorce: How does the process work?

    As promised; we now look at the Divorce process.

    All divorces are dealt with either in the High Court or in the Regional Divorce Court; which courts have been specifically created to assist the High Court in dealing with divorce matters. There is a High Court in each major city; and various Regional Divorce Courts in each Region of each province.

  • Divorce: Proprietary and Pension Fund Benefits

    In our last blog we looked at proprietary rights on divorce.

    Today we look specifically at pension benefits at divorce.

    One needs to be very careful about how retirement benefits are divided between spouses at the time of a divorce. Many people including their own attorneys get it wrong and leave non-member spouses, in particular, financially vulnerable as a result. And some of those getting it wrong are the so-called experts including divorce lawyers and retirement fund trustees and advisors.

  • Divorce: Proprietary Rights and Benefits:

    It is a sad fact of life that many of our marriages end up in a divorce; and as the statistics imply that up to two-thirds of all marriages, depending on where you live and into what social bracket you fall, end in a divorce; it is advisable to know your rights.

    A divorce order should cover the dissolution of the marriage, custody, guardianship and care of children, maintenance for the spouse (if applicable) and the division of/or be awarding of assets and liabilities acquired before, during and at the end of the marriage relationship.

  • Marriage and the end of a marriage: Divorce: What to consider before you proceed.

    Sadly; one of the matters that we get many queries about; is the issue of divorce.

    Most of us get married for life; but many marriages end in divorce.
