Frequently asked questions

Am I eligible for a divorce?

In order to get a divorce in Singapore you will need to satisfy 3 requirements:

  1. You must have been married for a minimum of 3 years unless the filing party can prove they have suffered exceptional hardship or their spouse has been exceptionally unreasonable and cruel.
  2. Either party must be a Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident, and have been living in Singapore at the beginning of the divorce process or have lived in Singapore for the 3 years immediately preceding the divorce application.
  3. The party filing for divorce must show that there has been an irretrievable breakdown in the marriage.

If you are unsure about whether you satisfy these requirements, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

What are the grounds for divorce?

The party filing for divorce must show an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. They must prove this against one of the following areas:

  1. Adultery;
  2. Unreasonable behaviour;
  3. Desertion for 2 years;
  4. Separation for 3 years (and the defendant consents to a divorce);
  5. Separation for 4 years.

It is highly recommended to discuss this with a divorce lawyer.

What is the true cost of divorce?

The cost will vary across law firms, but we believe in providing fixed and transparent fees upfront.

For uncontested divorces we provide the following packages:

$1,290 all in
No children, property or maintenance

$1,990 all in
Children, property or maintenance

For contested divorces, please get in touch to discuss your situation.

What is a uncontested divorce?

Sometimes referred to as an amicable divorce, the uncontested divorce occurs where both parties can agree to all of the ancillary issues.

This includes:

  1. the reason for divorce;
  2. the party who will obtain care and control of the children;
  3. how the assets are divided;
  4. a reasonable amount of maintenance.

Under an uncontested divorce, the interim judgment will be issued after 4 weeks, before final judgment is given 3 months from the date of obtaining the interim judgment.

What happens if my spouse refuses?

It is still possible to divorce, but it would be through a contested divorce. This can be significantly more expensive than an uncontested divorce and typically takes between 6 to 12 months to conclude on average.

It would be highly advisable to speak to a divorce lawyer to better assess your situation and next steps.

How long does a divorce take?

It depends on the complexity of your situation and the amount of negotiation involved. On average, an uncontested divorce can take 4 weeks to achieve an interim judgment. A contested divorce may take 6 to 12 months to conclude.

Client testimonials

It was a blessing that I spoke with family and divorce lawyer specialist - Ms Jessica Chow and worked with senior legal executive - Mr Jason Mak. They were both extremely kind and understanding to me and made everything so smooth from the start to the finish.

My divorce was finalized and completed officially in early 2020. I am so thankful to them. If you are reading my review, you may be going through a divorce as well and are looking for good representation. I cannot recommend PKWA Law Practice enough.

I wish to convey my appreciation to Dorothy and her team Ing Yee and Firdaus who represented me in my divorce. I have received excellent legal representation and professionalism in every aspect of the process.

Dorothy took the time to listen to all my concerns and responded with clear, concise notes outlining all the different courses of action including the positives and negatives with each choice.

I felt greatly assured by this outstanding team of professionals. I am grateful to have Dorothy and her team who handled this case with what I would consider perfection, dedication and utmost competence.
It was a great pleasure working with this wonderful team.


PKWA Law represented me in my recent divorce, which was eventually resolved amicably and satisfactorily. Dorothy Tan and her team were a tremendous support throughout this stressful process. I have no hesitation in recommending PKWA Law and Dorothy to anyone looking for competent, knowledgeable, sympathetic, and efficient representation!

Working overseas, it was not easy to balance the time-consuming, emotionally-draining, financial stresses and uncertainties of divorce in Singapore.

PKWA Law understood my situation and did exceptionally well to communicate clearly, through email, for me to make balanced and legally-advised choices. They listened and interpreted, filtered out things that would not be helpful for the situation, avoided traps & skillfully maneuvered the path, gave assurances and communicated next steps and gave me likely outcomes that I would have had to consider to make the best decisions.

PKWA managed to help me close at Mediation 1 without having to go further to Mediation 2 and the Litigation stages for which I am sincerely thankful.
