Divorces & Matrimonial Law
Has your marriage regime been taken care of before you get married? What is the best marriage regime? We advise on, draft and register anti-nuptial contracts. Make sure you know the law and act accordingly.
A divorce is never a nice experience and can be even more daunting if the parties are not well represented. Christo Smith Attorneys in Nelspruit have many years of experience in dealing with divorce issues, curbing costs and negotiating settlements.
Apart from the divorce itself, there are many issues pending the divorce that need professional attention.
Protection orders are necessary where a party is abused. Interim custody or maintenance orders where a party is left destitute during divorce proceedings, are often necessary.Beware of legal representatives who fight the case with the sole purpose of depleting the parties’ assets. Lengthy litigation and squibbles over non-sensical issues should be avoided in divorce proceedings at all costs. Also stay clear of “cheap divorce” options often advertised in the press by unqualified or disbarred persons. In the long run it’s always more expensive and often detrimental to your future.
Disputes regarding the custody (residential rights) of minor children, maintenance and division of assets, regularly arise in divorce proceedings. Wives and children need special care in these matters. The wrong advice and failure to fight for the best deal can have a long-term devastating effect.
We will guide you through the whole process, make sure your interim needs are taken care of and ensure a better future for you and your children.
