BENEFITS OF A FIXED-FEE DIVORCE
One of the advantages of flat fee billing is that it encourages efficiency from your lawyer. Flat fixed divorce fees encourage lawyers to resolve cases quickly rather than dragging out litigation. There are no extra fees for additional meetings, waiting in court and no travel time costs.
YOUR EX-SPOUSE CANNOT ‘OUTSPEND’ YOU
Most importantly, a flat-fee or fixed fee divorce eliminates the possibility that your wealthier ex-spouse can take advantage of your financial circumstances. When you agree to a flat-fee or fixed fee divorce with us, you can have peace of mind knowing that your wealthier ex-spouse cannot “outspend” or “burn your money” during the divorce process.
You will not face the problem of giving in to an unfair settlement or not having the resources to fight just because your spouse has more money than you.

If you and your spouse both agree to a friendly and uncontested divorce in Singapore, you can obtain a divorce within about 4 months. Your case will be heard under the Family Justice Courts’ Simplified Uncontested Divorce Process.
This is the quickest and most affordable of all divorce proceedings in Singapore.
Unlike a contested divorce with a 2 stage process, there is essentially only a one-stage process in an uncontested divorce.
If you qualify for an uncontested divorce, the divorce process is fairly simple and fast. You will not be required to file any Parenting Plan or any Matrimonial Property Plan. The process is meant to simplify, hence the name ‘Simplified Uncontested Hearing Track.”
To qualify for an uncontested divorce under the Simplified Uncontested process, you and your spouse must fulfil the following conditions:
Your spouse must agree to the divorce.
Both parties must sign a draft Interim Judgement agreeing to all ancillary matters.
The draft Interim Judgment has to be carefully drafted to ensure that there will be no further claims once the divorce is granted. Further, if there is a HDB flat, we will advise you whether your sale or transfer of the HDB flat will meet with HDB’s rules and conditions.
Once we file your uncontested divorce papers under the Simplified Uncontested Hearing Track, we can normally get your Interim Judgment within 1 month and your Final Judgment 3 months after that. You and your spouse will not be required to attend court.
The process for an uncontested divorce is simple, fast and efficient.
