    You are going for mediation for the ancillary matters?

    Do you have any plan for your future? Like going back to work etc?

    Re: Any good & sincere Lawyer to recommend for divorce/separation

    You mentioned that you are going for mediation. So your spouse has proposed something to you? Wether you can stay in the same house after seperation, it all depends on the agreement between you and your spouse.

    Are you buying over his share of the house or is he transferring his share of the house to you? Or you are going to sell the house away and split the cost?

    I know you are worried about your future, me too worried about mine. 1st of all, you may need to think where you would be staying after divorce, how to earn an income that will support both you and your child. You will be lucky if you could get some maintenance from your ex-spouse. You have to set a direction and move on.

    For my case, I have a stable job, I have my parents to help me looking after my child. I intend to get my ex-spouse to transfer his share of the flat to me. But I still have worries and fear of our future. But dont't worry so much. Settle what needto be done now. Things in the future will be much better then you have expected.

    Jia you.

    Hi Homemaker,

    How was your mediation?

    I understand how you feel. I intend to takeover my ex-spouse share of the flat. But after taking over, it will be a financial burden to me although I have a stable income. But I intend to ask for more maintenance if possible to cover my future expenditure.

    For you, you can also ask for maintenance to cover you and your child's expenditure. Wether he will be married or not, he still have to be responsible for his child's living. Go and ask for a reasonable maintenance. It's your right to do so.

    Where did you stay? Your child is 20 months old right? Mine is also 20 months old.

    Hmm... Play date at airport is too far for me I stay at north.

    Housing issue: try your best to get the house. You need it for you and your child. I heard that there are cases where the judge will get the husband to transfer his share of the house to the wife. Let your lawyer / judge know that you need a roof for both you and your child. I am sure your lawyer will help you out.

    dont't think too much. Take thing a step at a time. Settle for the custody and housing issue first, then worry about the future. I always believe things will be better and will fall into places. We really can't worry too many things for the future.

    Just to share with you. My ex still comes and visit our child everyday. I find that he is a pest now. Not sure what is in his mind. He is the one that choose to give up this family and yet still come back everyday to visit our child. He is just a selfish ass. What worry me now is he is trying all means to get the custody, care n control of our child.

    Re: Any good & sincere Lawyer to recommend for divorce/separation

    Hi mummies, I am also planning for divorce. Any good lawyers to recommend? I would like to get the divorce done asap as I cannot stand my husband and his mistress who has been together for 9 months. He said that he will not contest for our child's custody and has even agreed to let me change my 20 months old girl surname to my surname. Only problem is that he refuses to pay for child support which I will request for in court.

    Re: Any good & sincere Lawyer to recommend for divorce/separation

    such an asshole! dont let him get away without child support! make sure he pays for the girl, need not change surname... since he wont contest better, get $$ from him, he need not visit the daughter and treat him as ATM.

    I m not sure about her fees. All I can say is that she is good in divorce. She will fight for her clients interest.

    I think you have misunderstand. I used to work in law firm n my ex boss does a lot of divorce matters. So after reading those posts, I m trying to help by recommending my ex boss to the mummies, if you gals really need a good lawyer badly. But her fees can be ex depend on case by case

    If can settle with ex then settle privately with ex first. And if the relationship is still ok, on talking and reasonable terms, maybe can just hire one lawyer to do the paperwork and that'll be the cheapest. But if not, you can just get the lawyer to settle for you and you tell your lawyer what you want. Just never underestimate how ugly things can get, get a lawyer with fighting ability and not those cheap and only know how to do paperwork only. I was on talking terms with my ex and we have more or less come to mutual agreement on how to settle but things very quickly grow ugly and a number of things he come up with caught me by surprise, I am glad I engage a lawyer who still can protect me. I will not recommend her though, the bill in the end come up to be a little messy. I was quoted $1k for separation and $2.5 for divorce. I can't remember the $2.5 include court fees or not. Court fees should be $500 or $700, I can't really remember. Most lawyers charge extra if fighting for property or child custody, mine was only a hdb flat and we are surrendering back to hdb so nothing to fight. HTHs~

    The flat will be considered matrimonial property so he can fight for it. How much shares he can fight depends on how the flat is paid. If its paid through your cpf, its much easier for you to fight for the whole flat or at least a larger portion. If its paid through his cpf, its of course leaning towards his advantage.

    Hi Feathers,

    The flat is paid thru my CPF n COV is paid by me too.
    Though renovation most of it is by me, he did some too but only minor ones.
