Charles Mendelow & Associates is a family dispute resolution law firm headed up by Charles Mendelow, one of South Africa’s leading family mediators and divorce and custody law experts. Charles founded his own specialized family law firm in 1987. We have built up a reputation for providing just, sensible and effective solutions. We are able, upfront, in the first consultation, to define the human and financial issues that are at stake and to offer the parties the opportunity to dissolve their marriage in a civilized and contained way; especially when children are involved.
Whilst husband and wife may be divorcing, the parents are not divorcing their children, and will always remain parents. This means parents still have to consult with each other, make decisions jointly, attend sports events, graduations and eventually marriages. Where, unfortunately, the levels of conflict are too high, we make it a priority to ensure that the matter is brought to Court with lightening speed. We ensure that your case is effectively presented before the Judge and that the issues are resolved appropriately at a price the client can afford.
