Are you concerned about contested divorce fees in Singapore? Have you heard many horror stories about contested divorce fees?
Recently, Dasha Zhukova and Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich (worth $9.3 billion) announced their plans to separate after 10 years of marriage. The couple have 2 children, businesses in Russia and an extensive art collection. As reported, the divorce could be “one of the most expensive splits in history”.
Does a divorce have to be expensive? No!

Most contested divorces in Singapore are resolved by way of mediation. Mediation is a process whereby both parties (together with lawyers) negotiate before a mediator in the hope of reaching an out of Court settlement.
Why are so many cases resolved by mediation?
As experienced family lawyers, we know the “best-case-scenario” and the “worst-case-scenario” should we go to Court. Usually, the “best-case-scenario” and the “worst-case-scenario” will not be poles apart. The differences can be minor. Hence, if we were to negotiate with your spouse’s lawyer, we are likely to strike a deal down the middle.
Should we manage to reach a settlement out of Court, our clients will save time and costs. This is our objective- to assist our clients in resolving their problems in the cheapest and most efficient manner.
At Family Law Advocates, we operate on a transparent basis. We do not charge based on what you and your spouse own. Even if you were a multi-billionaire, our standard charges apply.
