    DOROTHY TAN

    Associate Director

    Deputy Head of PKWA Family Law

     

    Tel: +65 6854 3475

    Website: http://www.pkwalaw.com/dorothy-tan.html

     

     

    Dorothy Tan is consistently recognised by legal publications and by her peers as a leading family lawyer. She is much sought after by clients for her tremendous hard work and expertise.

     

    Dorothy has received the following accolades:

    • Dorothy was named as one of Asia's top young lawyers in Asian Legal Business listing of 40 under 40 – Asia's Brightest Young Legal Minds" in 2016.  The list comprises of lawyers under the age of 40 who have been recognised for doing important deals, working on key disputes and other high quality work, and earning accolades from their colleagues and clients.
     
    • Dorothy won a landmark case at the Singapore Court of Appeal, after the client had turned to her for help when he lost at the High Court. The Court of Appeal case that Dorothy won (Twiss, Christopher James Hans v Twiss, Yvonne Prendergast [2015] SGCA 52) has become a landmark case and has been cited and followed by the Singapore Courts in decisions involving division of matrimonial assets.  Her client wrote a glowing testimonial of Dorothy's skills, dedication and hard work, which can be found here.
     
    • Dorothy is arguably one of the youngest lawyers at age 25 to lead a team and to win at the Court of Appeal and in a case that is now a landmark decision.

    Dorothy regularly receives exceptional client feedback.

    NOTABLE CASES:
     
    1. Dorothy was engaged by a client (the husband) to be the lead counsel in a complex and difficult case involving the division of multi-million dollar assets. The case was heard before a court of 3 Appellate Judges at Singapore's highest court, the Court of Appeal. Dorothy won the appeal and that decision has become one of the most important cases in Singapore divorce law because the Court of Appeal reaffirmed and summarized the new Singapore law on division of matrimonial assets [2015] SGCA 52].
     
    2. Dorothy's Court of Appeal case is now a landmark case in Singapore on division of matrimonial assets and has been subsequently cited and followed by the Singapore Courts in such cases as Zhou Lijie v Wang Chengxiang [2015] SGHC 316; TIG v TIH [2015] SGHCF 12; TME v TMF [2016] SGHCF 6 ; THL v THM [2015] SGHCF 11 ; TNL v TNK [2017] SGCA 15 and UBD v UBE [2017] SGHCF 14.

    Dear Mr Lim

    Both Executors are unanimous in our assessment that PKWA made the whole process, simple and painless, with knowledgeable information and minimum demands on our time. No more coming down for repeated signing of affidavits, no more piecemeal requests for documentation, and most important the updates were frequent, and to the point. The probate process was completed in less than a month - quite miraculous by any standards.

    The whole experience has been a breadth of fresh air. We will have no hesitation in recommending PKWA to anyone seeking help with probate matters. And If the rest of your practice is as pleasant and efficient as this experience, we would gladly consider returning for our other legal needs.

    Special mention to Mr Firdaus who never fails to address my emails and calls patiently and promptly. Mr Firdaus is a great asset to the firm.

    PKWA is definitely a recommended professional service firm, and I would highly engage the firm in future when the need arises. Thanks again!

    From the first free consultation, I could see that PKWA Law has an enormous amount of experience and ethics. I first saw Mr Lim and Ms Chow They guided me and were very professional and knowledgeable. What I especially like is that they told me what I could get and could not get. When I wanted to take a certain approach, Mr Lim told me not to spend money unnecessary as he felt I won’t succeed. He was very frank and honest and it is refreshing to see that he charged a much lower fee instead of charging a higher fee to fight an impossible case.

    The commitment of the lawyers and support staff to my case was outstanding."

    Thank you both for your support, advice, words of wisdom, and counselling. The initial step to divorce is not easy, scary, and fraught with uncertainties, but you have both made that journey all that much easier to bear. Things could not have turned out any better. In fact, the wife called me after we left PKWA to go for a drink and we shared a good light-hearted moment – something that we had not done for a long time.

     

    So thank you both for all that you had done; it was more than just a divorce. You helped my wife and I find resolution, peace, confidence, happiness, and even friendship. These are things that money cannot buy and the future looks so much brighter.

    Many thanks for your help all this while.

     

    Great thanks for the encouragement, support and I’m glad that I’ve been granted sole custody of my children. I fought bravely at the court counselling though I was not confident as the belief is that the Court usually encourages joint custody. As I fought, I trembled. And I’m glad I had fought.

     

    It was good that you were calm, gave me time and reason to cool down and ultimately got me the settlement I want.



    Hi, Chong Boon,

     

    I still can recall the day when I first came to see you with my brother in your office. That time, I was lost and helpless, had gone to seek legal aid, enquired with HDB, communicated with the EC developer, went to seek advice from MP. Yet, I was still lost, no direction, don’t know how to move on, where to get an answer. I was afraid of losing the EC.


    The advice you gave me, the confidence in you, … I am glad that now all is sorted out with regard to the divorce and the ancillaries. I am glad I got to keep the EC.

    Protect your loves ones by making a Will. When you make a Will, you create certainty about who will inherit your estate and who should manage it.

     

    Probate and Letters of Administration

     

    Our team of experienced and dedicated probate lawyers, supported by a team of professional legal executives, have an extensive and varied experience in advising and obtaining Grants of Probate (where there is a will) and Letters of Administration (where there is no will).

     

    What does a probate lawyer in Singapore do?

     

    When a person dies, someone needs to collect all his assets and distribute them to the beneficiaries. The probate lawyer will apply to court to get you a Grant of Probate (where the person dies with a will) or Letters of Administration (where the person dies without a will) to enable the rightful person to collect the deceased’s assets and to distribute them in accordance with the will or in accordance with the Intestate Succession Act.

     

    To put it simply, the probate lawyer’s main job is to help family members to obtain a Grant of Probate (where there is a will) or Letters of Administration (where there is no will). These are simply court orders that identifies the rightful person to collect the deceased’s assets and to distribute them. As an example, if the deceased has a bank account, the bank will need to see this court order to satisfy themselves that they are dealing with the rightful party.

     

     

    Because of our vast experience, we normally are able to complete obtaining the grant of probate or letters of administration in 1 to 2 months for most cases.

    Below you will find useful information on probate matters.

     

    1. What happens when a person dies and leaves behind a property that belongs to him/her?

     

    A person, known either as an 'executor' or an 'administrator', has to be appointed by the Court to take charge of the deceased person's property (collectively known as his 'estate').

     

    If there is a will that has been made by the deceased person, it will contain details of the appointment of an 'executor' to take charge of the estate as appointed by the deceased person.

     

    If there is no will made by the deceased person, an appointment of a person known as an 'administrator' will be appointed to take charge of the estate. This administrator is usually one of the next-of-kin of the deceased.

     

    In order for such persons to be recognised legally as the executor or administrator of the deceased person's estate, applications have to be made for 'Probate' or 'Letters of Administration' respectively.

     

    2. What does a 'Grant of Probate' mean?

     

    It is a court order authorising an executor, appointed by the deceased person under his Will, to administer his estate according to the directions contained in his Will.

     

    3. What are Letters of Administration?

     

    It is a court order authorising a person(s) to administer the estate of the deceased person in accordance with the law.

     

    4. Who can apply for the Grant of Probate or Letters of Administration?

     

    Grant of Probate

    Only the executor(s) named in the Will of the deceased may apply for the Grant of Probate.

     

    Letters of Administration

    In the case of Letters of Administration, any of the deceased person's family members is entitled to apply to be appointed as an administrator. However, the law gives priority to certain members of the family over others, depending on the marital status of the deceased person and his/her family's composition.

     

    For example, if the deceased person was single, his surviving parents will have the priority over his brothers and sisters to be the administrators; or if the deceased person was married with children, his spouse will have priority over the children to be the administrator.

     

    The law also requires that at least 2 administrators be appointed where there are one or more minor beneficiaries. A 'minor beneficiary' refers to any person below 21 years of age who has a share in the estate. This is to protect the minor beneficiary's interest in the estate.
