Family Law

Le Roux Du Plessis Attorney’s Family Law Department is headed up by Mr Martin-Dean Hayward assisted by Mr Jano Nel.  Our team of lawyers are specialists in family law (including Divorces / Maintenance / Domestic Violence / Custody), conducting divorces throughout South Africa.  We work alongside other professionals, financial advisors, medical professionals, mediators, counsellors and family therapists to support you in the best way possible.

When disputes arise within families, emotions run high and rash decisions are made. This is why divorce law is an arena fraught with acrimony — it’s also why choosing the right attorney is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.  The breakdown of a relationship is an extremely difficult time when you are ending your marriage.  Our team understands that the combination of emotions, uncertainty and anxiety relating to children and finances can be overwhelming.  We have considerable experience representing clients through the divorce process, whether it be supporting clients to resolve matters at an early stage or until a final decision is made by the Court. We will tailor our approach to meet your individual needs, depending on your circumstances and priorities in order to achieve the best outcome for you and your family. Our team of expert divorce law attorneys will help you make the best decision throughout proceedings by providing you with pragmatic and exact advice whilst also remaining empathetic at all times.  We believe it is this unique approach that has brought us highly-satisfied clients and an outstanding reputation within our field.
