Divorce in South Africa

Divorce is the legal ending of a marriage, thereby terminating the legal responsibilities of the parties under the marriage contract. This usually requires the sanction of a judge. If the parties were not allowed to marry another under the marriage contract, the divorce will free them up to remarry.

The divorce action involves the divvying up of assets accummulated during the marriage, specifies who has custody over the children (if any), responsibilities for child support, responsibilities for continued spousal support and the division of any debt.

The law applying is the Divorce Act.
