Divorce within one day
By saying "yes" during one’s own wedding ceremony, one seals a complicated and complex contract, submitting one’s self to unknown rules, both present and future. During the prenuptial romance it hardly crosses anyone’s mind that the marriage could some day end up in divorce.
Divorce obviously is a serious event in anyone’s life. Therefore, having accessible information and specific knowledge at one’s disposal at that time are of crucial importance. Should both partners come to the mutual conclusion that a divorce in the end is the best way to go, it will still be feasible to separate with a certain grace. Here’s where Bokkes Fontein Attorneys come in with all their expertise. At the moment married couples can opt for either short or longer divorce proceedings. If both parties can mutually agree on getting a divorce and will abide by its conditions, it is quite possible to carry out the proceedings within one single day. These ‘one shot’ divorce proceedings certainly have interesting advantages which can be realized by Bokkes Fontein Attorneys.

Procedure for the ‘One Shot’ Divorce
First of all, both parties have to agree on all conditions of the divorce. They can specify these conditions by filling out an intake form. For example, they can agree on dividing up the property (including the house) or concur on the amount of (child) alimony due. Obviously, Bokkes Fontein Attorneys can help you with filling out this form. However, in these ‘one shot’ divorce proceedings it is crucial that both parties have already reached a basic agreement on all conditions relating to the divorce. Upon submission of the filled out form a personal meeting will be held with one of our lawyers at Bokkes Fontein Attorneys. Hereby, it is crucial that both parties show up at this meeting.
What to bring along for the personal meeting

- (copy of) marriage licence
- birth certificate of children
What occurs during this meeting
During the meeting the specific lawyer of Bokkes Fontein Attorneys will thoroughly go through the divorce covenant that has been drafted on the basis of the filled out intake form. Of course, this draft contract between parties may be adapted to their last minute concurring wishes. Once the contract has been signed by both parties it will have become binding.The divorce proceedings will also be explained to both parties during this session. They will be informed immediately about the date and time for the ‘one shot’ divorce court proceedings. Usually, this type of divorce will be done and dealt with within a month’s time. On the basis of certain considerations, parties may agree on a particular date for their ‘one shot’ divorce through intermediary of Bokkes Fontein Attorneys.

The usual proceedings for divorce
It is obviously always possible that both partners can not agree on getting a divorce or won’t agree on the conditions of that divorce. Possibly one of the parties would prefer to initiate divorce proceedings, without the prior knowledge and/or cooperation of the other partner on the grounds of some personal considerations. Should that be the case, then the ‘one shot’ divorce will not be a viable option. In that case, Bokkes Fontein Attorneys can obviously assist their client in going through the usual divorce proceedings.
