Anyone who is engaging a family law deserves the opportunity to work with a lawyer who is experienced, competent and possessing ability to empathize and listen to their situation. Unlike civil lawsuits, a divorce has no winner and loser. Hiring the wrong divorce attorney for your case can lead to unnecessary pain and amplify your suffering.

 

How do you know if you are engaging the right divorce lawyer for your circumstances? At Huffe, we provide you with a comprehensive guide to relieve your burden in making a wise legal decision for your best interest.

 

 

 

 

Our 6-Step Divorce Lawyer Guide provides you with a clear understanding on the reasons why you need a divorce lawyer to assist you with the complex divorce procedures and the specific job scopes your lawyer is obliged to perform for your legal case.

 

In enabling you to better understand the types of lawyers, we have segregated into four broad categories namely Top Divorce Lawyer, Best Divorce Lawyer, Good Divorce Lawyer and Cheap Divorce Lawyer in terms of the lawyers’ years of experience, reputation value and cost wise needed for your divorce case.

 

 

 

 

There are three types of divorce in Singapore namely Civil Divorce, Muslim Divorce and Expat Divorce. The divorce procedures in Singapore consist of a 2-step process. The first stage of proceedings is to determine whether there are sufficient grounds for the Family Courts to grant a divorce. The second stage is when ancillary issues are dealt with and resolved. These include division of matrimonial asset, divorce maintenance, access, care and control, and custody of children.

 

Generally, divorces can proceed as an uncontested divorce when both spouses agree on all issues pertaining to the marriage or a contested divorce when parties are unable to agree on certain ancillary matters. This will directly affect the nature of divorce lawyer fees you would be paying which is either by fixed fees (restricted for uncontested divorce) or fees calculated based on hourly billing.

 

 

 

 

Divorce rates are on the rise in Singapore and more couples are untying the knot as the years go by, so that marriages are not lasting for as long as they did in the past. Huffe seeks to strengthen marriages and family life by providing divorce support to couples and families.

 

Before you embark on a final decision to divorce your spouse, there are several ways you and your spouse can attempt to remedy your marriage problems by improving marriage communication. Should you feel that you are unable to solve your marriage issues on your own, you may want to consider consulting a professional marriage counsellor.

 

Apart from facing any personal negative emotions or possible social stigma from the effects of your divorce, a divorce would also severely impact your children, career and finances. Consider if divorce is really the best option for you and if so; be sure to engage a good divorce lawyer who will guide you through the divorce procedure in Singapore.

 

 

 

 

Also, the relative high cost of lawyer fees could be one of the largest concerns in getting a proficient lawyer to assist with your divorce. We recommend the following alternative options in gaining access to free consultations and advice from knowledgeable lawyers through the government-owned Legal Aid Bureau (LAB), free welfare legal clinics such as through the Law Society of Singapore, Singapore Council of Women’s Organization (SCWO), and local Community Centres (CCs) as well as taking a free consultation trial session at a law firm.

 

Aside from all legal option to engage a professional lawyer, the last, final option to settling a divorce is to file for a divorce without a lawyer. While it is possible, it is highly discouraged especially when you are prepared for a contested divorce as you would need someone suitable qualified to settle the disagreement between you and your spouse.
