I want to File For a Divorce
I have been married since 2014 and my partner and I have been separated for almost a year due to irreconcilable issues,however my partner wants to sort things out and see whether our marriage can work but i have been waiting since so i would like to know what i need to do as i don’t have a permanent job and cant afford that much to have a divorce and also ever since she got a job that’s when she started saying she needs space whereas the time i was working there was none of that,There was a time where i was not working but when the tables were turned things changed and she didn’t want to provide and said she needed space. So i want to know what can i do to solve this matter .
Only the Regional Magistrate’s or High Courts can grant order of divorce in South Africa. The spouse who wants it initiates the process by serving a summons on the other. Divorce, whether uncontested or otherwise, can be costly. A whole lot of factors such as the marital regime in place, division of the joint estate, child(ren), and a lot others are taking into careful consideration by the courts at divorce. I think you may have to speak to a lawyer to guide you appropriately.
