Contested Divorce

CONTESTED DIVORCE IN SINGAPORE

If your spouse is unwilling to proceed with an uncontested divorce, we can assist you with the contested divorce proceedings.

Most contested divorce proceedings conclude at the mediation stage (i.e. about 80% to 90% of contested divorce proceedings conclude at the mediation stage).

Contested divorce proceedings tend to vary in complexity and fee quotes can have a wide range. Generally, you can expect to pay $5,000 and above if the divorce is contested.

Do note that we can only take in a limited number of contested divorce cases per month. Our mission is to provide the best service to our existing clients and we do not exceed the number of cases we can realistically take on.

Disbursements for contested divorce will be capped at $800.

We offer a free 30-minute consultation to assess your matter. We believe in providing you with a thorough, detailed analysis of your contested divorce matter. Do note that as our free consultation slots are limited, we adhere strictly to the 30 minutes for these free consultations.

During our consultation, we won't be rushing through the session to get you to sign an engagement letter. We believe in explaining the entire uncontested divorce procedure in Singapore as well as analyzing your family situation so that we can provide you with a bespoke divorce solution.
