Recently, I read about Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix reaching a divorce settlement. It is always nice to see a couple reach an out-of-court divorce settlement. You should not prolong your agony. It is a waste of time and resources. The uncontested divorce procedure Singapore is fairly straightforward.
Uncontested Divorce Procedure Singapore
Step 1: The divorce papers are prepared.
Step 2: If the divorce papers are good to go, we will arrange for you and your spouse to sign the papers in our office.
Step 3: The signed papers are submitted to the Family Justice Courts.
Step 4: The Court grants the divorce.
