Here are some tips on how you can further save money for your divorce:

Consult a lawyer before acting

It is important to obtain legal advice early and to know your rights and obligations before committing to any settlement or agreement.   It costs more to vary or undo a court order.

Talk to your spouse

There are no absolute winners in divorce.  Communicate with your spouse in a constructive manner, and be willing to compromise.   When you are able to negotiate with your spouse, you will reduce the amount of time that a lawyer needs to spend on your case.

Communicate with your lawyer efficiently

When talking to your lawyer, be concise and to-the-point.   When your lawyer requests documents and/or information from you,  provide the information as soon as you can. If you do not readily provide it, your lawyer is then required to spend additional time, resulting in additional fees, chasing you for the requested documents and/or information.

Family Law Fixed Fees – for your peace of mind.

Divorce Lawyer Singapore Fees – Family Law Fixed Fees by PKWA Law

PKWA Law provides affordable family law and divorce services to our clients from all walks of life.  We have helped many clients go through the divorce process with confidence and peace of mind that their legal fees are fixed, clear and transparent.

At PKWA Law, we offer Family Law Fixed Fees.  We want you to have the peace of mind that your divorce lawyer fees are fixed from the beginning – no extra or hidden charges.

Mr Lim Chong Boon, Head of Family Law at PKWA Law explains:

“Many people worry about seeing a lawyer because of the cost, so our scheme is designed to give clients peace of mind, clarity and transparency on costs from the outset.  With our Family Law Fixed Fees, clients know that that there are no “hidden extras” and that they will receive high quality legal advice for an agreed and reasonable cost.

Our family and divorce law clients not only get access to affordable legal representation where fees are fixed, they also get access to quality divorce lawyers who are consistently named as leading family and divorce lawyers by respected legal publications.  It’s a win-win for the clients.”

Why we came up with Family Law Fixed Fees

Fixed fees vs. hourly-based fees – a comparison

  • With fixed fees, you know the price in advance – with hourly based fees, you do not know what your total fee will be.
  • The traditional way to bill clients is on an hourly basis. With fixed fees, you agree on the divorce fees right from the beginning.
  • If your lawyer charges you by the hour, your lawyer charges for time spent on your file whether or not the matter moves forward.  With an hourly-based fee arrangement, the longer your divorce case takes, the higher the fee.
  • If you are on an hourly fee basis, you are in the dark about exactly how much your fees will cost. Lawyers can tell you their hourly rates, but they also cannot know the number of hours they will take to do the job.  Your lawyer is entitled to charge you for each phone call, each meeting or simply waiting in court for your case to be heard.  In short, if you are billed on an hourly basis, you never know the total price until the whole process is complete.  In many cases, clients run out of money half-way through the case.
  • Family Law lawyers usually charge by the hour. That is the ‘traditional’ way and has been for many years.  Lawyers do not like a fixed fee structure because they have no control if the case ‘over-runs’ or turns very complicated.  Lawyers have thus always preferred charging by the hour.
  • On the other hand, with our Family Law Fixed Fees, we agree the fees with you right from the outset. You won’t be charged for every minute we spend on the phone or every document that we read.  You are charged only the agreed fee.    You won’t get any nasty surprises in the mail at the end of each month telling you how many hours you have to pay for – because the price is already agreed.

Maintenance and division of assets – PKWA Divorce Lawyers

10 March 2017

By Lim Chong Boon, Head of Family Law, PKWA LAW PRACTICE LLC

On 3rd March 2017, the Court of Appeal announced a series of decisions in TNL v TNK [2017] SGCA 15 that have substantial implications for divorce in Singapore.

Every family law litigant should be aware of the latest decisions. PKWA Family Law Head Mr Lim Chong Boon discusses what the latest Court of Appeal ruling means for you.

Divorce Singapore

1. The Court of Appeal has ruled that that any spouse that spends (without the other spouse’s approval) substantial sums during the period when divorce proceedings are imminent or before ancillaries are concluded must return that money to the asset pool for division. It would not matter if the spending was a gift or for the benefit of the children. What this means is that any spouse who spends substantial sums will now have to account and return the money for division.

2. The Court of Appeal has limited the ANJ and Chris Twiss approach. The ANJ approach will continue to apply to Dual Income Marriages. It will no longer apply to Single Income Marriages. This is because the ANJ approach tends to unduly favour the working spouse over the non-working spouse. This has huge implications for calculating division of assets.

3. Even when ANJ approach does apply (ie, to Dual Income Marriage cases), step 2 in that approach should not be further broken down into 2 sub-steps such that separate ratios are assigned to indirect financial contributions, on the one hand, and non-financial contributions, on the other.

4. The Court of Appeal confirmed that for long Single-Income Marriages, our courts will lean towards an equal division of the matrimonial assets. Therefore, for long marriages where only one party was working, division is very likely to be equal.

5. The Court of Appeal said different considerations will play when it is a short marriage but declined to go into specifics.

6. The Court of Appeal also repeated that the court’s power to order maintenance is supplementary to its power to order a division of matrimonial assets. So, in this case, where the CA awarded half of assets to the wife, she did not get a hefty maintenance (a multiplier of 3 years was applied instead).

7. The Court of Appeal also encouraged divorced couples to move on to face the future instead of re-fighting old battles. Therefore, spouses would now have to think very hard about appealing if the potential adjustment of the sums awarded works out to less than 10%. The courts will now award costs against the successful party if the adjustment is less than 10% as this does not justify the amount of time, effort and anxiety that went into mounting the appeal. They will also award costs if the arguments are nit-picking.

8. The courts’ philosophy of marriage is that it is an equal partnership. It recognises that a marriage is not a business where, generally, parties receive an economic reward commensurate with their economic input. It is a union in which the husband and wife work together for their common good and the good of their children. Each of them uses (or should use) his or her abilities and efforts for the welfare of the family and contributes whatever he or she is able to. The partners often have unequal abilities whether as parents or as income earners but, as between them, this disparity of roles and talent should not result in unequal rewards where the contributions are made consistently and over a long period of time.

9. The courts will use the ‘broad-brush approach’ in division of assets by highlighting that mutual respect must be accorded for spousal contributions, whether in the economic or homemaking spheres, as both roles are equally fundamental to the well-being of a marital partnership.

LIM CHONG BOON and DOROTHY TAN successfully varies court order for maintenance

20 Oct 2015

Family Law Head Lim Chong Boon and Deputy Head Dorothy Tan were successful in persuading the Family Court to lower the maintenance to be paid by our client to his former wife and child.

Our client had engaged us to vary downwards a previous maintenance order. In response, the ex wife filed a counter application to vary upwards her maintenance.

We argued that there have been material changes in the circumstances of the case, namely that our client had since remarried and has children from his new marriage.

In a decision announced today, the Family Court District Judge agreed with our arguments and varied downwards our client’s obligation to pay maintenance. The ex wife’s application for an upwards variation was dismissed.

This was another hotly contested matter with the matter taking one year to conclude.

PKWA Law wins custody of child for husband and gets greater indirect contributions for husband

14 Oct 2015

In a divorce case, it is more common for the wife to get custodial rights (care and control) of the child.

In this case however, Family Law Deputy Head Dorothy Tan and Tan Chao Yuan succeeded in in getting for our client (the husband) care and control of the child.

This was a case where the parties were already divorced and were fighting over the custody of the child and the division of the matrimonial assets.

In a decision announced today, the Singapore Family Court accepted our arguments that it is in the best interests of the child that care and control should go to our client (the father), and not the mother.

The Family Court further accepted our arguments that our client had played a greater role in looking after the family and awarded him a greater indirect contribution towards the assets. The end result is that our client was awarded a greater proportion of the matrimonial assets and has care and control of the child.

Mr Lim Chong Boon, Head of Family Law said, ” Our client is extremely happy with the outcome. It is not so common for a husband to win care and control of a child. Therefore, it is to our lawyers’ credit that they were able to put together a case that persuaded the judge to award our client (the husband) the care and control of the child.”

Family Law Department Deputy Head Dorothy Tan wins important and landmark Court of Appeal case on division of matrimonial assets

Decision establishes and confirms new Singapore law on division of assets

Twiss, Christopher James Hans v Twiss, Yvonne Prendergast[2015] SGCA 52

[2015] SGCA 52

Court of Appeal — Civil Appeal No 22 of 2015
Chao Hick Tin JA, Judith Prakash J and Quentin Loh J 9 September 2015
Family law — Matrimonial assets — Division

02 Oct 2015

Asset Division – Family Law Department Deputy Head Dorothy Tan successfully argued and won a significant and landmark case at Singapore’s highest court, the Court of Appeal today. This is an extremely important decision because in this case, the Court of Appeal affirmed and explained its earlier revolutionary decision in ANJ v ANK on the approach the Singapore courts must take in deciding the division of matrimonial assets. All divorce cases in Singapore involving division of assets must now follow this case and ANJ vs ANK.

This is a case in which our client (the husband) had instructed us to act for him after he had lost at the lower court.

After hearing arguments, the Court of Appeal allowed our client’s appeal and agreed with Dorothy that the High Court decision was wrong and awarded our client a sum of $800,000 for division of assets. Our client’s share was increased from 0% to 25%.

The Court of Appeal said: “ In advancing her arguments, Miss (Dorothy) Tan highlighted the fact that the Judge had erred in law by applying what was generally known as the “uplift” methodology. This error consisted of taking the view that the wife’s indirect contributions should be reflected by applying an “uplift” to the share she would have been entitled to on the basis of her indirect financial contributions only. We accepted Miss Tan’s contentions on this score and we considered that the Judge had erred in that regard.”

This case is extremely important and significant because the Court of Appeal reaffirmed and clarified its recent decision in ANJ vs ANK that in determining what is a fair and equitable division of matrimonial assets, the court will follow a structured approach consisting of 3 broad steps. These 3 broad steps are:

  1. Express as a ratio the parties’ direct contributions relative to each other, having regard to the amount of financial contribution each party made towards the acquisition or improvement of the matrimonial assets;
  2. Express as a second ratio the parties’ indirect contributions relative to each other, having regard to both financial and non-financial contributions; and
  3. Derive the parties’ overall contributions relative to each other by taking an average of the two ratios above, keeping in mind that, depending on the circumstances of each case, the direct and indirect contributions may not be accorded equal weight and one of the two ratios may be accorded more significance than the other.

Family Law Head Mr Lim Chong Boon said, “ This case together with ANJ is now taken as the new law in Singapore on division of assets. After the decision in ANJ, family law practioners were trying to understand the change in law. The Court of Appeal took the opportunity in this case to explain the new law and to reaffirm it. At a recent family law seminar, this case and ANJ were cited as the new law governing the division of assets in Singapore. Deputy Head Dorothy Tan has done us all proud. Our client is also extremely happy with the outcome.”

Interview with a Lawyer: Lim Chong Boon

28 Sep 2015
– Yuk Lun Chan (Singapore Legal Advice)

Mr Lim Chong Boon is an experienced litigation lawyer with more than 25 years of experience in probate, family and divorce law. A prominent lawyer, he was appointed by the Chief Justice to the Inquiry Panel of the Law Society of Singapore, and was also previously a Council Member of the Law Society of Singapore.

He is one of the first lawyers that we welcomed onto SingaporeLegalAdvice.com. As part of a series to let the public know more about community lawyers, we ask him a few questions to find out more about the practice of family law.

How did you get into family law?

I have always been interested in family law since law school days. No two cases are the same. Each case tells a story of love lost or love betrayed. As a divorce lawyer, I really feel that I am helping my clients on a professional and personal level. I always tell my staff: “Every client who walks through our door and engage us, we must be honoured. We must be honoured because they are trusting us with their pain and sharing their deepest personal problems. They trust us. Therefore, do your job with great pride and with great empathy.”

What inspires you to continue be a family lawyer?

I have done a great deal of commercial cases before, and the big difference is that in family law, you actually feel that you are doing something that helps society and your clients.

What was the most rewarding experience in your legal career?

Every case is rewarding. As a divorce lawyer in Singapore, it is rewarding when you see that you have made a difference in someone’s life. There was a case where the wife and her child were beaten up and abused. We got her the divorce, got her the flat and got a PPO [Personal Protection Order] to stop the husband from committing family violence. It is rewarding to see your client move on and know that their lives are going to be better.

There are so many divorce lawyers in the market. Why should somebody hire you?

There are many good divorce lawyers in Singapore. What makes me feel privileged is that I have a big set up and my team is dedicated, experienced and talented. We have 2 lawyers and one Legal Executive to every file.

Clients know that they have a team advising them, and that at any one time, they have access to us. It is easier when you have a great team behind you.

How do you make sure that your fees are affordable, since the market is so competitive?

We try very hard to have parties mediate and to resolve the case. We also tell our clients in advance what the anticipated legal fees are.

What is your focus when handling divorce cases?

Divorce law in Singapore is not so straight forward. Divorce clients do not want to spend too much time and they certainly don’t want to be involved in a long running court battle. Divorce litigation is very draining, both financially and emotionally. So our focus is to try to settle the cases wherever possible.

Do you have a life philosophy that guides your law practice?

Live and let live. Move on, always look at the big picture.

Outside of law, what activities do you engage in?

I do a fair bit of sports. It keeps me mentally sharp.

How has been the experience of running your own law firm?

It is rewarding and I have great partners and a great team. I always tell my friends and my clients that the staff I have are the best.

Our lawyer wins trial against divorce filed by husband

25 Sep 2015

Our team of lawyers led by Mr Tan Chao Yuan today successfully defended our client (the wife) against a divorce filed by her husband.

The husband filed for divorce on the ground that parties have been separated for 4 years. However, during the trial, we produced evidence that there had not been separation for 4 years.

Our client did not want a divorce and had wanted the marriage to work.

The Family Court accepted our arguments that our client (the wife) has successfully proven her case and dismissed the husband’s application for divorce.

For more information on this case, please contact Mr Lim Chong Boon at chongboon@pkwalaw.com.
