Once you get divorced in court, it is the duty of the attorney to obtain the divorce order. Usually the Attorneys present the Court with a Draft Order that is made and order of court. The Divorce Order is a very important document as it affects your legal and commercial status. We get many requests to get a copy of a divorce order and settlement where the client never received a copy or the copy was lost.
It is mostly an impossible task if the case number is not known. When the Divorce Order needs to be used outside the borders of South Africa it needs to be legalised by Apostille or Authentication certificate. Obtaining a divorce decree in South Africa
We attend the High Court in Pretoria and the State Archives on a regular basis. To members of the Public it can be a daunting task to navigate. We can obtain the necesaary Divorce Order on your behalf and legalise the Divorce Order for use in any country in the world.
To get started we will at least require the case number, names of the parties and a date when the order was granted. Sometimes people still have an copy of the Divorce Order.
