Expat Divorce in Singapore

A divorce through the Singapore courts may be available to you if you are not a citizen or Permanent Residency holder in Singapore. If you are residing in Singapore and have done so for the last 3 years, you qualify to file divorce proceedings in Singapore. There are added complexities to a divorce in such cases. It is often referred to as an Expat Divorce.

You may file for an international divorce if:

  •  You have resided in Singapore for 3 continuous years. In this case you are eligible to  file for expat divorce in Singapore
  •  Your civil marriage took place abroad
  •  You and / or your spouse are from outside Singapore, and have made Singapore your home

The above are the basic criteria where ‘expat divorce’ or international divorce law applies. Due to the nature of an international divorce, there are usually some complex legal issues to consider so it always best to take advice from a lawyer experienced in international divorce issues.
