As an Expatriate in Singapore, how can I get a Divorce?

What are the qualifying factors for Divorce in Singapore?

Expatriate divorces can be heard in the Singapore courts if the parties have been married for at least 3 years and if one or both parties are habitually domiciled in Singapore, i.e. If the parties have spent the past 3 years residing in Singapore.

If you satisfy the 2 above mentioned antenna, you will be eligible to seek a divorce in Singapore.

You can contact our divorce lawyers for more information and to enquire if your marriage fits the divorce requirements.

What is the difference between filling a divorce in Singapore and in other countries?

The Courts may accept different reasons for divorce in different countries. For instance, parties can choose to proceed on either a fault-based or non-fault based divorce in Singapore but there is no such notion of a fault-based divorce in Australia.

There are also different considerations involved with regards to the division of matrimonial property. As such, you may wish to speak to a divorce lawyer to help you decide on the most favorable jurisdiction for you to commence divorce proceedings. You should seek the opinion of an experienced divorce lawyer.
