Family Court & Child Law
It is an unfortunate fact that not all marriages are successful. When a relationship breaks down it is not unusual for one or both parties to seek to dissolve the marriage or to obtain a formal separation.
If there are children of the family under 18the court must be satisfied that proper arrangements are being made for their welfare.
A fair division of the family assets, including the matrimonial home, must be worked out. In the majority of cases this is achieved by mediation between parties. We emphasise negotiation and agreement rather than conflict and confrontation in the application of the principals of matrimonial law to the special circumstance of each individual case.
We can also advice on family protection, domestic violence, interdicts, adoption, child and care proceedings.
