“Hailed as a leading specialist for family and divorce law in Singapore.”

The Straits Times

“A leading specialist for family and divorce law in Singapore. The firm packages most of its legal services with an all-inclusive fee that is affordable for all.” – The Straits Times

Ranked as a leading divorce law firm

PKWA Law provides top-quality divorce services at reasonable legal fees starting from just $1,490. We have one of the largest teams of family lawyers in Singapore and our family lawyers are consistently named as leading Singapore divorce lawyers by the Straits Times, Benchmark Litigation, Asian Legal Business, Singapore Business Review and Doyle’s Guide.

PKWA Law is one of the first to offer fixed and transparent fees

Here at PKWA Law, not only are we widely regarded as a leading divorce law firm, but we also offer fixed and affordable divorce fees to our clients. With our fixed and budget-friendly fee starting from just $1,490, you’ll know your costs upfront so that you get full value with no surprises.

Court of Appeal wins

Our focus is to settle a divorce matter amicably, and we successfully settle about 90% of our cases. However, if your spouse does not wish to settle, we often achieve exceptional results in litigation.

PKWA divorce lawyers have won two Court of Appeal cases, including one where the Court of Appeal awarded our client 75% of $13.6 million in matrimonial assets, up from 25%. The swing in matrimonial assets from 25% to 75% in favour of our client is arguably one of the highest in divorce history in Singapore.  The judgment was 60 pages long, and the Court of Appeal judges described the case as “complicated,” “challenging” and “highly unusual.”  In another Court of Appeal case, we successfully obtained a higher share for the ex-husband by relying on the new Singapore law on the division of matrimonial assets.

In another high-profile case that was reported extensively in the Straits Times in October 2022, we successfully acted for the ex-wife in a High Court divorce case where the ex-husband had “went all out to hide over $3 million” from her.

Christopher Twiss

In my hour of need, I was recommended to PKWA. Dorothy Tan LISTENED to my case and worked tirelessly over the holidays and weekends to meet impossible deadlines. A very upsetting and stressful time, but I will be forever grateful as Dorothy believed in my case and sought a fair and just resolution against insurmountable odds. At every juncture, Dorothy provided realistic, honest assessments and I proceeded based on her recommendations. If Dorothy and her team decide to champion your cause, you should consider yourself very fortunate.

Jing Lou

Words cannot express my thanks to PKWA and to Ms. Charlene Nah and Mr. Jason Mak for their kind help. My divorce case went through mediation, district court hearing and then appeal hearing. It went on for more than two years and to make the matters even more complicated, I am doing this from overseas. Charlene and Jason are there with me every step of the way, providing their professional service and also some personal touch to make the case easier for me emotionally. They are very experienced with Singapore Family Law and always have my best interest at heart. At the latter part of the district hearing and appeal hearing, I was struggling with legal fees, because the case went on much longer than I expected, due to my ex-husband's stubbornness. Charlene went out of her way to help me cope with the difficulties, even encouraged and helped me to represent myself at appeal court. The outcome is very favorable and there's no way I would be able to accomplish that without Charlene and Jason's kind help. Divorce is unfortunate and difficult in its nature, and you'd need your lawyers to have your best interest at heart at all times to overcome the difficulties. PWKA is such a law firm you can fully trust. I can't thank them enough.

Clara Tan

I have engaged PKWA for my divorce proceedings after doing some research and I have made the right choice. My case was assigned to their lawyer, Derek Choo and legal manager, Firdaus. Derek is very thoughtful and efficient; he has explained my rights over the matrimonial home and assets. He has provided valuable guidance during mediation session. He even followed up my case and called during his reservist to discuss. Firdaus is very responsive and followed up timely in administrative works. He even helped to deliver the legal paper personally to my ex-spouse after the 1st attempt failed. Both gentlemen have gone above and beyond the call of duty to ensure things are on track. I am very satisfied with the outcome of the final judgement. Highly recommended PKWA for their excellent service.

Dorothy and team are true partners. When I first met with Dorothy, it was her empathy and professionalism that gained my trust and confidence to engage her service. Throughout the process, she and her team worked relentlessly to help me, explaining in detail the questions that I had and provided sound advice on my possible options and the potential outcome. I am very grateful for them, as they genuinely care and are there to listen; and what’s more, they are very competent, professional and approachable.

During the past 6 months of this CB period, I went through lots of stress and fear for my case. Fwah Mingli listened and guided me with patience and sympathy, with help from Jessica Chow and Ms Corinne. Although they are very busy most of the time, but always responded my enquiry promptly. Today it’s finally over. I feel relief and look forward to a new life. Thank you PKWA!

I engaged PKWA for my contested divorce both before and after the 3-year mark and had no regrets doing so. Their fees were transparent, which made financial planning a lot easier. I would like to especially thank Ms Charlene Nah and Mr Jason Mak for their extraordinary help during that trying period of time. Despite the circumstances, I felt that Ms Charlene was genuinely trying to help. I would definitely turn to them in future for legal advice.

1st meeting was with Ms Jessica Chow. Decided to settle with PKWA Law after going to several law firms to check with my uncontested but complicated divorce case.

The free consultation went smooth and proceeded to engage the firm to handle my divorce. Overall, I am very satisfied with the service provided by the team (Jessica/Corrine) whom have handled my professionally.

David Chiu

Working overseas, it was not easy to balance the time-consuming, emotionally-draining, financial stresses and uncertainties of divorce in Singapore. PKWA Law understood my situation and did exceptionally well to communicate clearly, through email, for me to make balanced and legally-advised choices. They listened and interpreted, filtered out things that would not be helpful for the situation, avoided traps & skillfully maneuvered the path, gave assurances and communicated next steps and gave me likely outcomes that I would have had to consider to make the best decisions. PKWA managed to help me close at Mediation 1 without having to go further to Mediation 2 and the Litigation stages for which I am sincerely thankful.

Keline Ong

I was glad to have chosen PKWA Law to represent me in my divorce case. Mr Low Jin Liang gave me a clear overview in the initial meetup and constantly ensure that I have complete understanding at every milestone of the case. His advice is always putting my best interest first which is very important for my case. Also, special thanks given to Mr Jason Mak who has been constantly following up on my case promptly and providing insights on miscellaneous matters.

Tony Tang

Divorce is the most difficult path in my life; it was so scary and full of uncertainties. Initially, I was very upset and lost my mind becoming so stressful but you have given me the right direction and made that journey much easier to bear. You are such a diligent, responsive and caring lawyer; you have shown your professional works and handled my case successfully. I just want to express my deepest thanks for everything. I am appreciative to you and your team who have finally relieved me of all those months of stress
