A divorce ends a marriage, and on divorce, the husband and wife are no longer related, and don’t owe each other duties and obligations, except for ancillary matters (where applicable). Parties intending to go through Divorce Proceedings in Singapore are frequently emotionally charged.
Usually, parties are unsure of their respective rights, or the procedural aspects of commencing a divorce proceeding. Our experienced Singapore Divorce Lawyer (over 30 years of experience) will endeavour to assist our Divorce’s clients in divorce proceedings in an expeditious and professional manner at reasonable costs.
In Singapore, there is only one ground for Divorce, i.e. irretrievable breakdown of marriage based on one or more factual basis, such as adultery, unreasonable behaviour, desertion, living apart for 3 years with consent, and living apart for 4 years without consent.
The couple must have been married for at least 3 years before a Writ of Divorce can be filed, unless the Applicant can prove exceptional hardship or if the other spouse has been exceptionally unreasonable and cruel.
