What is a divorce?
A divorce is the legal termination of a marriage by a court of law. This proceeding can be brought to court by either the wife or the husband.
In order to become a divorce lawyer in Johannesburg, a lawyer must first attend law school, ideally studying family law topics over the course of his or her education, and qualify to practice law by taking the bar exam. Most bar exams include a written exam and a character assessment to ensure that the candidate is morally fit to practice law. Once qualified, the lawyer will seek work in a practice which handles family law matters, getting practical experience in the field.
