Divorce Lawyers

We offer transparent and affordable fees for divorce

When a marriage breaks down, dealing with divorce and separation can be a difficult and distressing time for everyone involved. On top of the emotional fallout, there may be considerations surrounding children, and the division of your assets (such as property & CPF).

Ordinarily, a married couple can only get a divorce in Singapore after they have been married for at least three years. However, under certain circumstances, such as where there has been violence committed against a spouse, a divorce may be granted even when the three-year period has not passed. Alternatively, reasons may exist where a marriage may be annulled, such as where there has been wilful non-consummation of the marriage.

The usual reasons for the Court granting a divorce due to an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage are; the unreasonable behaviour of one of the parties, or when parties have separated for either three years by consent or four years without consent.

Singapore law on divorce features what is commonly known as a “no-fault” divorce; this means that generally, the reasons for the breakdown of the marriage will not be taken into consideration by the Court during the division of matrimonial assets or assessment of maintenance.

Our team of divorce lawyers focus on exploring all possible outcomes for resolving your situation, and we are committed to dealing with cases in a non-confrontational, and constructive manner. Our aim is to find an amicable agreement between all parties, with court proceedings being the last resort.

I am so grateful to choose IRB in my divorce. I contacted them immediately after I decided to divorce with my spouse. They immediately responded and asked for my details. After less than 3 days, the drafts are already presented to me. I am amazed how they manage to help me efficiently and effectively.
