I would suggest going to the regional magistrates' court in you area requesting the registrar to assist her with the process. Summons for divorce need to be issued. The dilemma is that the summons must be served on him personally, which is costly with him being in the UK. However, through a process of substituted service this may be overcome. The best would be to see an attorney or in case she has no financial resources to go to the Legal Aid Board in your area. The father will retain parental rights in terms of the Children's Act, unless the High Court declares otherwise.
