Divorcesmart specializes in offering a private and confidential mediation service to couples wanting to divorce amicably, fairly and as cost effectively as possible.
The purpose of mediation is to avoid excessive costs. Depending on your marriage regime, there is a possibility that you will forfeit some of your wealth. Mediation will not only save you money in terms of advice, but the fee is also not based on your total assets.
An average fee for mediation, as well as drafting of agreements and drafting of a sustainable Parenting Plan, is approximately R4000.
Parenting Plans are drafted in terms of the new Children’s Act which results in a sustainable reference guide for both parents. This ensures that both parents will have a meaningful relationship with their child/ren.
The advantages of mediation and the drafting of a sustainable Parenting Plan are a potentially amicable divorce settlement and avoidance of future legal costs.
After a recent landmark high court ruling hailing the benefits of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), there has been a marked increase in the number of litigants opting to resolve legal spats outside the courts.
