Common Divorce Questions
What is required to file a divorce in Singapore?
You need to prepare a copy of your marriage certificate, NRIC and birth certificates of your children (if applicable).
How long does it take to complete a divorce?
An uncontested divorce will take 4 to 5 months to complete. A contested divorce may take up to a year or more to be finalized depending on the circumstances of the case.
What is the difference between a divorce and Annulment?
In an annulment, the marriage will be declared null and void. After an annulment parties will return to being “single”, rather than being labelled as “divorcees”.
A divorce marks a legal ending to a marriage while an annulment deems that the marriage never existed.
The most common grounds for annulment include:
-          One spouse’s willful refusal to consummate a marriage
-          No valid consent to the marriage
-          Spouse married at the time of marriage
-          Spouse suffering from a communicable sexually transmitted disease at the time of marriage
-          Spouse pregnant with someone else’s child at the time of marriage
The grounds for a divorce include:
-          Unreasonable behavior
-          Adultery
-          Desertion
-          3 years separation
-          4 years separation
