Hi In a contentious divorce you could divorce in South Africa because its the palce where you live
You do not have the chance to it in a consensual divorce if he do not came to sign to South Africa
But you can do it with an a local atorney of your residence city
I will be here if you need more help. Thank you
As you say you live in Germany, you can file for divorce in Germany. You may file in South Africa only if your husband is not only a SA citizen, but also a SA resident. If he resides in Germany, you need file for divorce in Germany. Besides if you have children icing with you in Germany, German courts will have jurisdiction over your divorce proceedings.
Hi again, You can only get the contencius divorce in the last place where do you live togheter or the last place you live actualy
If you live actualt in Germany you better go to an attornety of your town ir order to put the demand on court.
If you do not live in SuothAfrica any more you can no managed there
