WHAT IS DIVORCE?


A divorce is the legal procedure that ends a marriage.


REQUIREMENTS / CONDITIONS TO APPLY FOR DIVORCE


One can apply for a divorce in Singapore if both husband and wife fulfil one of the following conditions:

  • Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident
  • Domiciled in Singapore
  • Lived in Singapore for more than 3 years

Both husband and wife has to be married for at least 3 years before one can file for a divorce. However, the Court may grant an application of divorce if one can prove that exceptional hardship can be proven, such as abuse and mistreatment.

A divorce is only granted if one is able to prove that the marriage is “irretrievable broken down”. This would mean that one would find it intolerable to live the spouse. A divorce could be granted if one is able to provide evidence on the following grounds:

  • Adultery - It is whereby one party has been unfaithful and been caught having sex another person.
  • Unreasonable Behaviour - Unreasonable behaviour is a really broad term. It could include physical abuse, emotional abuse, alcoholism, gambling problems and squandering of money.
  • Desertion - It is whereby one party has been left alone with support for a continuous period of 2 years without any intention of returning.
  • Separation for 3 years - It is whereby both parties have lived apart for a continuous period of at least 3 years. Consent by both parties is required
  • Separation for 4 years - It is whereby both parties have lived apart for a continuous period of at least 4 years. Consent by the Defendant is not required.

For Singapore divorce matters, the firm’s fees start from $1,800. Please call 6535 1306 or email godwin@godwincampos.com.sg

"Mr Campos’s firm has recently represented me in my divorce. It has been a very upsetting an acrimonious case, and I cannot thank them enough for all the help and support they have given me in additional to their very professional services. They have been very flexible and accommodating to my extremely difficult circumstances. Most importantly, right from the beginning I felt that I could trust Mr Campos and his associates. They were honest with me and did all they could to keep my costs low and fought my case in an exemplary and high professional manner."
