Is there such a thing as adultery alimony Singapore?

Adultery Alimony Singapore

In general, the answer is no. Adultery is a reason which one can use to file for divorce in Singapore.

The amount of spousal alimony (maintenance) is determined by:

  1. The financial needs of the wife;
  2. The financial resources of the wife;
  3. The financial resources of the husband;
  4. The age of the parties and the length of marriage;
  5. The standard of living enjoyed by the wife prior to the divorce; and
  6. The parties’ respective contributions to the marriage and the family.

See: Section 114 of the Women’s Charter (Singapore)

Further, if the wife has a career and is able to sustain herself financially, the Court may not order maintenance in her favour.

She messaged Laura on Instagram before calling her to ask about what happened. Coleen is furious that Wayne had spent 20 minutes with Laura in the car before driving her home.
