Family Law | Divorce and Child Rights

Our dynamic and progressive team of family law attorneys always strives to keep up with the complex and rapidly changing field of family law in South Africa and around the world. We uphold an unmatched standard of excellence in our work and in the personal service we deliver to clients.

We have extensive experience in those areas usually associated with family law, such as divorce, parental rights and responsibilities, maintenance and adoption.

We are known for our high level of discretion in all family law matters, including those for very high profile clients.

Family Law Services

We also specialise in mediation, antenuptial contracts, co-habitation, same sex relationships, paternity, curatorship applications, relocation matters and international maintenance cases. We also have an admitted notary on staff. We have recently become involved in the area of collaborative divorce, which we believe may be the way of the future in divorce law.

The outcomes of clients’ marriages, divorces, maintenance disputes, residence and contact disputes and international relocations affect every other area of their lives, reaching long into the futures of themselves and their children. We therefore believe in managing clients’ cases closely with them and, where necessary, a multidisciplinary team of experts. We work closely with several psychologists and social workers who specialise in the effects of divorce on children and on the parties themselves. We have excellent professional relationships with a number of specialist advocates, forensic accountants, property valuers, maintenance court experts, tracing agents and private investigators.

We have a sensible approach to all cases and this has led to an excellent success rate and high levels of client satisfaction.
