This site is owned and managed by W.M.Low & Partners, a firm of advocates and solicitors practicing matrimonial law in Singapore.
We are also familiar with child custody disputes, having obtained favourable orders for fathers as well as for mothers. Prior to instituting divorce proceedings, a litigant may wish to consider various options open to them, including seeking counselling through qualified counsellors.
It is in the parties’ interest to resolve the issues early, to minimise the impact on the children. The legal costs will also be much more manageable, if the matter is resolved early. The parties can then move on with their lives without being engaged in acrimonious and unnecessary allegations against each other.
In situations where you think your spouse is likely to be difficult or if the issues are complicated or assets substantial and a quick amicable resolution is not possible, then the litigants should seek legal representation early and collate evidence that are relevant and of weight early, thus enabling their counsels to present and advance their case in an effective and efficient manner.
It is our view that it is always prudent to seek legal advice as early as possible, before engaing the other party in any negotiation.
