More about seeking a Divorce:

Making the decision to get a divorce is no small decision. Reflecting the importance and the impact of such a decision, getting a divorce in Singapore is a methodical and sometimes complicated process. Singapore law requires spouses who want to get divorced to meet certain requirements first. In particular, it must be shown that the marriage has irretrievably broken down. There are also requirements relating to whether the Singapore Courts have the jurisdiction to grant the divorce in the first place. Divorce also requires unravelling the life that was shared between two spouses. The end of the marital relationship means deciding how to divide the financial and material possessions. Former wives or decapitated husbands may have been financially dependent on their former spouse, and need their former spouse to continue to provide maintenance. If they have children, it is necessary to decide who will look after the children on a daily basis, how their expenses will be provided for, and how and by whom major parenting decisions will be made. We are able to guide you through the process of getting a divorce, starting with proving the reasons for a divorce, down to the final division of matrimonial assets, and settling of children matters and the financial matters. Our Mr. Liaw Jin Poh is an experienced family lawyer, and will be able to provide you with practical advice and robust representation.
