Child Custody & International Jurisdiction Issues
If you are about to initiate a divorce and your spouse lives abroad, the process could be simple or become complex depending on the number of issues that you face (for example, children, marital assets, business holdings, etc). If you and your spouse come to an agreement on the terms of settlement, the divorce can be finalized as a simplified uncontested divorce.
Where there are contested issues, we encourage our clients to mediate in order to spare the family the uncertainty and stress of a full blown out court litigated divorce. The most heavily contested issues in expat divorces in Singapore revolve around jurisdiction, child and property matters. These matters can be bitterly contested and especially difficult to resolve in an international divorce.
