Good morning

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you in answering your question today so please feel free to ask as many follow-up questions as you like until you are satisfied that I have answered your question.

I do appologise for only getting back to you now, I was not working on the website during the weekend.

It is actually a very simple matter. All you need to do is to instruct an attorney to institute divorce proceedings against this person wherein he is to ask for forfeiture of the benefits of the marriage in community of property.

The info that you have of him should be sufficient to trace his address and the attorney will instruct a tracing company to trace his address. The cost for tracing him should be less than R500.00.

If the tracing agency is unable to locate him, the attorney can apply to court for substituted service where a shortened version of the divorce summons gets published in newspapers. If he then doe not respond, you will be able to get an unopposed divorce order.

I trust that this answered your question.

Please be so kind as to rate my service by clicking on the relevant stars or smiley faces. If you do not rate my service, I do not get paid by the website so I would really appreciate it if you would be so kind as to rate my service positively.

Kind regards
