HOW TO GET AN UNCONTESTED DIVORCE IN SINGAPORE

UNCONTESTED DIVORCE

An uncontested divorce is the alternative to going through a trial in court.  An uncontested divorce is much less expensive than a contested divorce and allows both parties to end their marriage amicably and quickly.

In Singapore, a majority of divorce cases are uncontested divorces.  

In uncontested divorces, spouses must come to an agreement on all issues raised by the divorce. This means important decisions like how assets are split or how custody is managed must be made together and agreed and signed by both parties in the Court Order.  This means that you must be able to talk to your spouse and come to an agreement on all issues.  Contrast this with a contested divorce, in which both spouses are not able to agree on ancillary issues and litigate in court for the judge to decide.

 

When do you go for a contested divorce?

A contested divorce is suitable only if you have an exceptionally complex case or have a spouse who is completely uncooperative.  It is also quite common for a divorce to be contested if there are large assets to be divided or where both parties want custody of the children.
