Family Law And Divorce Law

Divorce Lawyer – At PKWA Law, we have a large team of divorce lawyers in Singapore who specialise in all areas of divorce law, including Uncontested and Contested Divorce.  Each one of our divorce lawyer is trained and committed to helping you obtain your divorce quickly and amicably.

Here, we explain what is meant by ‘Uncontested Divorce’ and how to obtain one.

 .

WHAT IS AN ‘UNCONTESTED DIVORCE’?

 .

An Uncontested Divorce simply means that you and your spouse agree to divorce AND you are not fighting on issues such as properties, children and money. Naturally, an Uncontested Divorce is preferred to a Contested Divorce because it is cheaper, less stressful and the divorce outcome is decided by you and your spouse.

  .

HOW DO I GET AN UNCONTESTED DIVORCE?

 .

To qualify for an Uncontested Divorce, you and your spouse must agree on a divorce and all ancillary issues.   As a general guide, you and your spouse should both agree on:

 

a. The reason for the divorce – Is the divorce based on separation or on the other spouse’s unreasonable behaviour or adultery?

.

b. Custody, care and control of the children – who will have care and control of the children?   For the spouse who does not have care and control, what kind of access is granted?

.

c. Division of matrimonial property – You and your spouse should agree on whether to sell or transfer the property to one spouse.  Next, you need to agree on the how much each should get from the sale or transfer.   If your matrimonial property is a HDB flat, you need to satisfy HDB requirements for a sale or a transfer.

.

d. Division of other matrimonial assets – you and your spouse should also agree on what is to happen to other assets (apart from the matrimonial property).

.

e. Maintenance for wife and children – There also has to be a consensus reached on how much maintenance (if any) the husband is paying to the wife and children.

 .

HOW PKWA LAW CAN HELP YOU

 .

As you can see, there are many permutations and calculations before you can reach an agreement to proceed with an uncontested divorce.  You should especially know your rights before you reach a settlement.

 .

At PKWA Law, our team of experienced and well-regarded Singapore divorce lawyers will:

 .

  • guide you through the process, and advise you on what it is a fair and reasonable settlement.
  • provide a complete service, from commencement to Final  Judgment.
  • advise you how to structure the settlement agreement (especially  with regard to children issues and property).
  • obtain the Interim Judgment within one month.  The Interim  Judgment is a conditional divorce.  It is an extremely important  step in the divorce process because it is a court order making it ‘official’ what parties have agreed to.  You are well on your way to conclude the divorce.
  • obtain the Final Judgment three months after the Interim  Judgment.   The Final Judgment is the document that concludes  the divorce proceedings.  With the Final Judgment, you will be able to proceed to sell or transfer the matrimonial property.  You are also free to remarry once the Final Judgment is obtained.

CONTESTED DIVORCE PACKAGE

 .

If you and your spouse cannot agree on a divorce or cannot agree on children, property and maintenance issues,  you can still file for divorce. Your divorce is known as a Contested Divorce.   Most Contested Divorce cases take about 6 months to 12 months to conclude.  There is a lot of preparation as you and your spouse will be litigating the case in court.

In such a case, we offer Family Law Fixed Fees – which means that before you engage us, we will tell you how much we charge up to a cap. We will not charge you beyond the Fixed Fees.
