- Both you and your spouse will need to sign the Deed of Settlement or Consent Paper.
- Make the necessary copies of all documents.
- Go to Court to issue your Summons and annexures at the Registrar of court (we will inform you which court in your area you need to go to).
- Once the papers are issued at court, you will need to take the documents to the sheriff of the Court for service on the Defendant. Costs to serve the documents are approximately between R100 – R200. It is advisable that both you and your spouse go to the sheriff’s office to speed up the serving of the documents so that the sheriff can serve it on the Defendant, if not the sheriff will serve it at the Defendants work or residence. Note: This is the steps you take when there are no minor children involved.
- Where there are minor children involved. Go to the Family Advocate in your area to endorse the Deed of Settlement.
- Count 10 (20 working days if your spouse lives outside the area of jurisdiction of the court) working days after the date of service on your spouse. Exclude the 1st day and include the last day, note Sundays, Saturdays and Public Holidays should not be included.
- Go back to Court (Registrar) and request a date for the hearing.
