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.”

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.

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.

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.
