Once your summons has been drafted, you must attach all the necessary documents (copies of ID documents etc.) and forms (annexure A if applicable). Then you must complete the statistics form that the Registrar will give to you.
After all this is done, the registrar will ‘issue’ the summons. Basically, he / she will open a court file, stamp your summons and assign a case number to your divorce. This process turns your summons into a formal Court document.
