Question value: R 0.00
Before lockdown I was busy divorcing my husband, I need to know if i can get a deed of settlement drawn up and send it to my lawyer for fine tuning and then he can just issue it to my husband and revoke the summons that was supposed to be served but was not done as yet? Is there a quicker way to get this done, I am in a situation where he is not willingly contributing to the running of the household or supporting our children with groceries. I need to get this done asap, as I need to get permission apparently to also move from our house which he has told me to get out of as it is part of his inheritance, although i have spent my inheritance on making massive improvements and extensions to. what are my rights regarding that? Can i ask for him or his parents (as it is on their farm) for compensation for that? He is unable to commit to an amount so that I can make a decision where I can move to with my children as I am employed by him currently, and he has also stated that he is going to get rid of me doing my part, and he is going to stop paying our houselady, that has been with us for 9 years, and he has not paid uif nor given her a contract. Please help me, I dont want to act out of pure desperation but it almost feels as if i have no options here.
Answer to the Question
I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
You can't revoke the summons! You need that in order to get divorced. You need the signed settlement agreement and then your husband needs to consent to the divorce being granted. You will then need to appear in court before a Judge.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
