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.
IRB Law has one of the largest Syariah law practices, with more than 10 lawyers and paralegals with expertise in this unique area of law. Our Syariah law practitioners are conversant in Malay, Tamil, Chinese and English.
