How to do an uncontested divorce

In this video Palesa gives a guide on how to proceed with an uncontested divorce. This is the process: If you receive a notice of intention not to defend, however your spouse wants to settle. 

1. You and your spouse will sit at a round table or a pre-trial to discuss the settlement conditions. Once you have agreed on the settlement conditions, these conditions will be made in order of court on the day that the divorce is declared and decreed. 

* This tutorial has a settlement agreement template guide attached. 

2. Once this document has been completed, both you and your spouse need to initial each page of the settlement agreement and sign the last page. This document can be made in order of court on the date that the matter is set down for hearing. 

The magistrate will then satisfy themselves that the divorce is uncontested and that the marriage has broken down.
