Singapore Divorce Lawyer - Lam & Co Blog

For most people, divorce is a rare and scary thing. You simply do not have any previous experience with it and there are many horror stories you have heard from your friends. Lam & Co.'s expert divorce lawyers are focused on sharing information with you to assist you as much as possible in making painless and correct decisions.

My Spouse and I Are Going To Divorce. Should I Go To Court or Should I Negotiate With My Spouse?

There are many benefits to a negotiated settlement.

Benefits of a settlement

The benefits of a settlement (instead of a court battle) may include:

-lower risk.

You can control the terms that you settle on (since you can decide on what terms to agree to).

If you fight the case, you have no control over the terms that the judge decides.

-(as mentioned above) having more control over the final outcome.

-lower cost.

-finishing in a shorter time.

Usually, a contested divorce will take more time, money and effort than an uncontested (consented) divorce.

-less emotionally draining and less acrimonious.

-a better understanding of each other's perspectives and concerns.

-better and more effective communications between the parties.

We highly recommend that you engage a lawyer to settle the case for you.Otherwise, you may not know what to look out for.

In particular, it is important to note that after you settle the divorce with your spouse, it may be difficult (or even impossible) to vary (or change) the terms later.

Situations where negotiations may not be suitable

Where your spouse is known to show toxic, abusive and/or dangerous behaviour towards you, it may not be safe or suitable to negotiate directly with your spouse.

You should consider reaching out to a professional to assist with the negotiations.

The above is not legal advice and should not be taken as such.
