Singapore Divorce – In Singapore, when a marriage breaks down and one party seeks dissolution of the marriage, the aggrieved party may resort to litigation as a means of resolving the issue. Whilst the Family Justice Courts provides the legal process to dissolve marriages, parties have always been offered mediation to avoid a full-blown litigation suit.
Court Mediation is an informal dispute resolution process brought before an independent third party. Mediation at the Family Justice Courts takes place at Tower Block, MND Complex, #4-00, 5 Maxwell Road, Singapore 069110.
Mediation assists the parties by giving them an opportunity to discuss their issues in a non-adversarial and non-confrontational way. It allows parties to have complete control over the outcome by allowing them to negotiate their own settlement.
As the mediator has no authority to make a binding decision unless both parties have come to an agreement, parties may feel happier with the terms that they have agreed on as compared to orders made by the court. Mediation also allows a more reasonable timetable for resolving a dispute.
The Singapore Family Courts have an excellent record at resolving divorce disputes at mediation.
For all the reasons above, parties are typically more satisfied with mediation. Also, because there is no winning or losing party as the settlement is mutually agreed upon. Mediation also saves parties both time and legal costs.
Most importantly, given the fact that mediation is a non-adversarial process, parties can avoid all the emotional trauma of undergoing a trial, which would inevitably lead to stress, tension, acrimony and increased costs.
At PKWA Law, we encourage clients to attend court mediation as it is very highly effective in resolving family law disputes. For mediation services, please contact Lim Chong Boon or Jessica Chow.
