Matrimonial Property Law

This is property owned or obtained by either or both married spouses before or during their marriage.


“I was introduced to Tanya van Schalkwyk many years ago during a very challenging time in my life.  I was then married to a man who had two children from a previous marriage.  Very early in our relationship it came to my attention that the children were being abused at their maternal home.  I had approached social workers and other attorneys, without any joy or success.  The necessary documents were forwarded to Tanya and at the first appointment was not only I “heard”, but also the children.  Tanya attended to the matter passionately and professionally.  No stone was left unturned and no time was wasted.  Tanya constantly wowed me with her vast knowledge and perceptiveness.  I was astounded each time that Tanya pre-empted a situation that nobody could “see”, and then the exact situation that Tanya had anticipated, would then unfold.

I am admittedly an extremely emotional being.  Tanya understood this, acted professionally and dealt with each situation as it arose effectively and admiringly well.

Tanya and Riaan have assisted me with numerous legal matters over the years, which included mediation of my divorce (children having always come first!), bullying at school, labour and contractual advice, and also assist with the collection of outstanding debt for my business.

I have found Tanya to be extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout the years, her service having never faltered and, instead, I find myself more pleased and impressed as the years pass.  I recommend Tanya and her staff without hesitation!”

Integrity is a personal quality of fairness that we all aspire to. Van Schalkwyk Attorneys is all about Integrity and doing the right thing in a reliable way. It’s a personality trait that I admire, Tanya has a moral compass that doesn’t waver, and I would never be able to trust a person with my & my families lives that does not handle situations ethically.

“I have been privileged to be instructed by Van Schalkwyk Attorneys to appear as counsel in a number of litigious commercial matters over the years.  I have always been impressed by the firm’s loyalty towards its clients, its work ethics and the attention paid to detail, as evident from the hard work put in behind the scenes in preparing matters for trial.  One’s lasting impression of the firm is its trustworthiness, decency, professionalism and integrity.”
