Family and Matrimonial

 

Headed by Senior Counsel Engelin Teh, we are a well-established family and matrimonial practice in Singapore. Our Ms. Teh has extensive experience advising and representing clients in numerous complex and acrimonious family matters. Under her direction, our lawyers are committed to obtain the best results for our clients and their families.

 

We advise on the entire range of family and matrimonial issues. Our experienced family lawyers adopt a constructive approach to family problems. We understand that family and matrimonial disputes are stressful and sensitive, so we make every effort to handle these matters most effectively and discreetly. We pride ourselves in being responsive to our clients’ needs and are always at hand to provide the necessary attention to their matters.

 

Custody and Guardianship

When a family breaks down, disputes often arise as to the arrangements for the children. These situations are often emotional and distressing for the parents and the children involved. We have advised and guided many of our clients under these unfortunate circumstances.

 

We handle all manner of child-related disputes, both in the context of divorce proceedings as well as custody disputes under the Guardianship of Infants Act. We have acted for clients in child abduction cases, relocation applications with minor children to foreign jurisdictions; and maintenance applications for minor children under the maintenance summons regime.

 

Divorce and related 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.

Division of assets and maintenance

The ancillary issues of division of assets as well as maintenance for the wife and the children of the marriage will have to be resolved whenever divorce proceedings arise. We have represented clients from all walks of life in resolving these financial matters on their behalf. Our work ranges from advising the client, drafting the necessary court documents as well as attending court hearings on behalf of the client. Very often, our work also entails negotiating with the opposing party to reach an amicable financial settlement. No matter the size of the claim or the nature of the dispute, we are committed to reaching the best possible outcomes for our clients.

 

We also act for clients in maintenance summons applications for spousal maintenance.

 

 

Mediation

Mediation is now a prominent feature in family and matrimonial law practice. In line with the direction taken by the courts, we believe that it would be in the best interests of all families to try to resolve their disputes through non-contentious methods instead of litigation. Our lawyers are trained in the mediation process. We have acted for clients in both court-assisted mediation and private mediation.

 

Our Ms Teh is an accredited mediator and is on the family panel of the Singapore Mediation Centre. She has extensive experience resolving family disputes as mediator.

 

Deed of Separation

Should the parties to a marriage decide to enter into a deed of separation instead of commencing divorce proceedings, we provide legal advice, negotiate with the opposing party if required, and draw up the deeds of separation incorporating parties’ agreement. Very often, we continue to act for our clients in the subsequent divorce proceedings after the period of separation has been fulfilled.

 

Wills and Probate

Our lawyers have experience drawing up wills and acting for our client in probate matters, including contested probate applications.

 

Adoption

As part of our family and matrimonial practice, we also assist our clients in obtaining the necessary adoption orders for their children.
