Requirements for Uncontested Divorce in Singapore – At PKWA Law, we offer uncontested divorce services. An uncontested divorce in Singapore is when you and your spouse both agree to divorce and reach an agreement on child custody, division of matrimonial assets and maintenance. Should you require a quick divorce, the uncontested divorce route is the best option.
You and your spouse must reach the agreement before the divorce papers are prepared and filed in court. The result is that when divorce papers are filed, we will indicate to the court that this is an Uncontested Divorce. The court then marks it as an “Simplified Divorce” and separates it from other divorce cases that are being contested. This ensures that your divorce (Interim Judgment) will be obtained within 1 month of filing.
UNCONTESTED DIVORCE – HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The nature of an Uncontested Divorce is there is no contest because parties agree amicably to settle the divorce and ancillary issues themselves. Accordingly, the fees for an Uncontested Divorce are significantly lower than that of a Contested Divorce.
