The area of international family Law has grown significantly over the past few years in recognition that modern life in Singapore increasingly involves an international element.
In Singapore divorce proceedings, this can mean that one party may be residing in another country, having property or holding business and other assets abroad. It may also involve one parent wanting to relocate with children abroad.
For the purposes of jurisdiction in Singapore, expats may divorce in Singapore if they meet the 3 year marriage bar. That is, they have been married for at least 3 years and resided in Singapore for 3 years.
