Certified Mediator

certified-mediator-carla-vermeulenattorneys

We deal with divorce matters competently, confidentially and cost effectively.

Carla Vermeulen Attorneys - Port Elizabeth
There are two ways to proceed with a divorce, namely:

An Uncontested Divorce (which is a divorce where the parties have agreed on all relevant terms of the divorce beforehand) and agreement can be drafted and the parties divorce on that basis; and
A Contested Divorce (which is a divorce where the parties have not agreed on all relevant terms of the divorce beforehand, and the Court is asked to make a decision or settlement negotiations have to be entered into between the parties) An uncontested divorce is usually much cheaper and quicker than a contested divorce. Broadly speaking, it is usually wise to see whether a divorce can be settled and proceeded with on an uncontested basis, before proceeding with contested litigation.

We ensure that our clients understand the process, costs, and implications from the beginning of their matter.

Services we offer during Divorce Proceedings

We are able to assist clients with all aspects involved in the divorce process, including:

  • Assessment of their situation and advising them in respect of the way forward.
  • Drafting a Settlement Agreements.
  • Liaising with all the parties to the divorce and negotiating the terms of the divorce.
  • Drafting of Summons, which is the document that commences the legal process.
  • Approaching Courts related to the divorce, such as the Maintenance Court and the Children’s Court should all the disputes not be able to be dealt with in one action.
  • Applying for and obtaining a Rule 43 Interim Order (High Court Maintenance).
  • Referring a proposed Settlement Agreement to the office of the Family Advocate for endorsement.
  • Applying for and obtaining a Protection Order.
