HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO GET A SIMPLE DIVORCE?
An uncontested divorce (sometimes known as an Agreed Divorce, Simple Divorce, Simplified Divorce) is a divorce in which you and your spouse agree to divorce and all ancillary issues when you file for divorce.
An uncontested or simple divorce is popular because it saves you a great deal of money. How much does it cost? In Singapore, the fees for an uncontested divorce can range between $1,500 to $3,000.
If you have a lawyer, the cost of your simple divorce will depend on whether your lawyer charges you by the hour or offers you a fixed fee. Some lawyers will charge you by the hour as there may be negotiations to be carried out. In Singapore, many divorce lawyers offer flat fees for uncontested divorces.
At PKWA Law, a leading Singapore family law firm, our fees for an uncontested or simple divorce are $1,500 (if there is no court order required for ancillary matters) or $2,500 (if there is a court order required for ancillary matters).
How long will it take?
In a simple divorce, your lawyer should obtain your Interim Judgment (which is a provisional divorce and an important step in the divorce action) in about one month from the date that you engage your lawyer. After that, your lawyer should obtain the Final Judgment 3 months later. With the Final Judgment, the divorce proceedings come to an end and you are free to remarry.
