This fixed price package for defendant divorce in Singapore is relevant if someone is divorcing you and / or you have received divorce papers.
An uncontested defendant divorce is one where you have received (or have been told to expect) divorce papers from your spouse and you do not make a formal legal objection to the divorce going through.
Your lawyer will collect all the relevant details from you, correspond on your behalf with the other parties involved (your spouse and their solicitor, if appropriate) and prepare and file all the relevant papers.

(for expats living outside Singapore)
SGD 2,000.00 exclusive GST
You will be allocated a fully-qualified and experienced family lawyer to handle your divorce.
Your lawyer will collect all relevant details from you, correspond on your behalf with the other parties involved (your spouse and their solicitor, if appropriate) and prepare all the relevant papers.
They will explain the procedure to you and help you understand the process. They will deal with the relevant paperwork as follows:
Throughout this process we will tell you when one of the above steps has been taken.
In addition to the completion and filing of the paperwork above, we include an allowance of a one hour discussion with you by phone, e-mail, or in exceptional circumstances, in person. In most cases, this is more than sufficient to deal with all relevant issues.
*In the event of a dispute regarding whether you should contribute towards the other party’s legal costs of the divorce, the fixed price will not include any work required in this respect. This will be either charged at the standard hourly rate or a separate fee agreed. Any extra costs will be discussed and agreed with you before any work is undertaken.
In most cases the process follows through without difficulty. In some cases there can be additional issues to be resolved. Any extra costs will be discussed and agreed with you before any work is undertaken. If you need advice on reaching a financial settlement with the other party or agreeing arrangements for your children, we will provide you with a separate note of these costs.
By paying a fixed price at the start of your case you have certainty about the costs involved. The alternative is to pay an hourly rate for the time your lawyer spends on your case.
