Thank you for your follow-up questions.
1. Your question: Can this only be done thru an attorney in MS or can it be handled by an attorney in South Africa who could possibly send it in an overnight postage courier service?
Answer: You need to have a licensed attorney in MS file this for you.
2. Your question: Must it be presented by hand at the Chancery Court in MS or can it be mailed to them from an attorney here in SA?
Answer: Your attorney in MS can file this for you directly at the court.
3. Your question: Are there special forms to complete for this or do we just write a letter requesting the divorce to be set aside. and who do we address it to?
Answer: A set aside motion is pleading--a document generated by the attorney with points and authorities that relate to your case and persuade the Judge to set your case aside based on your facts.
4. Your question: How much time do we have to have the divorce set aside?
Answer: The date used for non service is the date you found out about the divorce. You need to speak with the attorney in MS to make sure that your motion is timely--usually they give you about 6 months--but I would file as soon as possible.
5. The attorney in MS can appear for you and you can request that you are allowed to teleponically appear--make sure to bring this to the MS attorney's attention, so they can ask the court for permission or a special request form may be needed in this court's jurisdiction.
Good luck on your case here,
