If you are divorced, are you ready for a second marriage Singapore?
On average, I handle about 200 divorce cases in Singapore every year. The divorce process may not be easy, especially if it is a contested divorce. If you do not have an agreement with your spouse on all the issues, you may have to go through a few rounds of mediation in order to reach a settlement. The process can be draining.
After the divorce, you will have to depend on yourself. If you have sole care and control of your children, you will be responsible for almost all aspects of their lives. If you decide to retain the matrimonial home, you will need to take care of the outstanding mortgage loan.
With so much on your plate, is it then possible to enter into a second marriage Singapore?
