We understand that getting a divorce is a difficult decision. In addition to taking care of the procedural requirements of the Syariah Court, our experienced Syariah lawyers will also advise on your legal rights and obligations in a divorce, such as the custody of children, division of matrimonial assets, and maintenance.
The governing law of Muslims in Singapore who have decided to get a divorce is Syariah law, which is different in many ways from civil law. Significantly, there is no minimum 3-year period before you can get a divorce under Syariah law. Also, unlike civil marriages, Muslim divorces are heard in the Syariah Court of Singapore.
More considerations arise where a Muslim has made civil law arrangements, such as wills and trusts, and where the Muslim was a convert, i.e. not Muslim at birth.
