Writ of Divorce – Understand what a “Writ of Divorce” is
1. Overview

You will be granted a divorce in Singapore only when a judge finds that your marriage has irretrievably broken down (Section 95 of the Women’s Charter).

To do so, you must prove to the Family Court that one of the following situations applies to you (Section 95(3) of Women’s Charter):

a) Your spouse has committed adultery and you find it intolerable to live with him or her

b) Your spouse has behaved in such a way that you cannot reasonably be expected to live with him or her

c) You have been deserted by your spouse for at least two years

d) You and your spouse have been separated for at least three years (on the condition that your spouse has agreed to the divorce)

e) Where your spouse does not agree to the divorce, you and your spouse must have been separated for a minimum of four years
