Divorce and related Proceedings

Divorce Proceedings

We know that when clients make the difficult decision to commence legal proceedings to dissolve or annul their marriages, they require sound advice, proper guidance and effective representation. We advise and represent our clients in all areas and stages of the legal process. We handle all aspects of work related to matrimonial proceedings, including the drafting of court documents, preparing for and attending court hearings, as well as arranging for and attending mediation sessions with our clients.

We offer our clients constructive, non-contentious options as well as legal strategies in difficult and contentious disputes.

Although commencing legal proceedings for judicial separation is uncommon, we have experience representing clients in this process. No matter the legal action, our commitment to our clients remains the same.

Explanation of a divorce process

Getting a divorce order means that your marriage has formally ended and you can remarry. However, a divorce does not sort out issues relating to property or children, and you will need to make these arrangements separately.

Recent Cases

Singapore Law

Under Singaporean law a divorce is not possible until three years after the date of marriage. Many divorces occur because of unreasonable behaviour of one or both spouses or because of infidelity.

 

However, Singaporean law has the principle of no-fault divorce.

This means that the Court does not consider why the marriage ended, and you just need to satisfy the Court that you and your spouse have been separated at least three years (with consent) or four years (without consent) and there is no reasonable chance of resuming married life.
