Section 7(3) of the Divorce Act 70 of 1979 empowers a court granting a decree of divorce in respect of a marriage out of community of property entered into before 1 November 1984 in terms of an antenuptial contract by which community of property, community of profit and loss and accrual sharing are excluded to order, subject to subss (4), (5) and (6) a redistribution of assets between the parties as the court may deem just.
There is no fixed percentage on what she will get as the court will have to make a value judgement on the facts. Thus the redistribution could be anything from 0% - 50%.
