Jurisdiction of the Family Court of Singapore

The Family Court of Singapore has jurisdiction over all marriage-related cases including expat divorces in Singapore. The Court’s jurisdiction covers Applications for Divorce, Personal Protection Orders, Property Settlement, Child/Spousal Maintenance, Parenting and Residence/ Living Arrangements with respect to children.  As long as there is a connection to Singapore, the Family Court is able to exercise its jurisdiction if required to do so.
