Fastest Way to Get a Divorce in Singapore

If you have made up your mind about getting divorced, you are likely to be interested to know about the fastest way to get a divorce in Singapore.

The fastest way to get a divorce in Singapore is to reach a settlement on all terms with your spouse (division of matrimonial assets, maintenance (alimony), and custody/ care and control/ access issues).

If you have a settlement with your spouse, you do not need to go through the mediation process. You do not need to have the Court hear the case and determine its outcome.

What you need to do is to make an appointment with us- engage us to prepare your divorce papers and schedule an appointment for signing of the divorce papers. The signed divorce papers will be submitted to the Family Justice Courts and divorce will be granted within 4 months! This is the fastest way to divorce in Singapore.

If the fastest way to divorce in Singapore is not fast enough for you, what can you do? If you have exceptional reasons (for instance, either party is suffering from a terminal illness and has a limited lifespan), you may make an application to the Family Justice Courts for the process to be expedited.

Typically, you may be able to shorten the divorce process by a further 1 to 2 months.

In the absence of “instant divorce” (Muslim men in India used to be able to divorce their wives through the “triple talaq”), this is as fast as it gets.
