Im happy to see this thread as i also encounter e same Hi anyone can share me e info pertaining my case? I been thought of filling a divorce as my husband dont't care e family n e kids. He even act rude while we having dispute. My concern is e custody issue and place of stay after i filling. Im a PR which sponsor by my husband, and im not working. I went to legal aid bureau before, e staff over there advise me to get a job asap n get my employer to sponsor me in PR, but i cant go to work now, coz i need to take care my 2 sml kids. Furthermore my flat still less than 5yrs, so if to divorce, hdb will get back e flat. Can anyone advise me if you have similiar case to me? what e judge will do normally? If i seek for lawyer frm legal aid bureau do i able to get good help? I mean if my husband want to fight wz me in court, private lawyer izzit better than legal aid bureau lawyer?
Talk to MP also? Can he help?
Does MP help in tis issue??
You can try. I am sure they will try to help you or advice you.
hi, you really need to get a job to prove that you have a stable income. if not, how are you going to prove that youcan look after and feed your kids? perhaps get some childcare help and fight for maintenance $$ from your ex?
How to fight for more maintenance? Can anyone share? Btw heard that judge will base on ex income n quote rite?
After going through free legal consultations and discussion with other divorce parents, I decided that I will file my own divorce instead of going through a lawyer. As my divorce is uncontested, all I need to do is to submit all the application on my own which I estimate will cost me about $500 and I will save about $1.5k. I have already filed for maintenance and gotten the court orders. I am now taking my own sweet time to file the divorce papers.
Can teach me hw to file by ourselves?
Is mr Ong good??? And how to file ourself?
yes would say mr. ong is good but 1 bad thing was that unlike other lawyers whom allowed instalment plans, he doesnt. i need to go borrow $ to pay off his fees
he dont't allow installment ar... mine will be a tough case. likely that man gonna fight for my boy etc...
How much is he charging?
Nah,his fees is standard for uncontested divorce,1.8k.prepare
about 500 for filing of documents etc.he will only file for settle down when you pay 1.8k...mine is uncontested;he everything also dont't want
you mean total 1.8k?
prepare 500 1st for docs? then balance when need to pay?
just to check if you have kids or flat involved?
yep, the lawyer charged me @ 1.8k in total; in addition 200 for travel, communications etc. for those documents like writ of divorce, statement of claims etc, it's not included in the 1.8k; think i paid around 400-500 for those court documents. i went to him on the last week of July; paid 1.2k. the following week i paid the balanced . he would want to collect the balanced from you before settle down for trial.
hearing date was set on 27th Aug, will need to give him another 1k deposit for ancillary matters hearing; wont know how long this will take. he mentioned divorce hearing very fast , chop chop ok >.<it's the ancillary matters that required time
eh no flat involved (lucky me); didnt want to apply house during our marriage coz somewhat i knew we wont last long...yes, i have a gal but he's giving up the custody & access etc...
Then total around 2.3k-2.5k... then another 1k for deposit ...no instalment .. sigh...
Anyone can get lawyer cheaper than this? pls advise
can teach me how to file by ourselves?
yep correct 3X instalment considered. 1st time paid 1.2k, 2nd time 1.3k, 3rd time 1k deposit. infact, you can check with diff law firms; they usually have 6months instalment plans/ more. but acc to Mr. Ong, he didnt want coz sure need to chase payment from some clients . so better for him to settle payment 1st...check around forums; btw is yours a contested/ uncontested? coz i heard of 1 law firm, Regent Law, that does uncontested @ 1.8k. payment wise, not sure. check with papergal85; she did it herself
Get married sign paper very cheap. Divorce paper very expensive ... : (
haha then in the 1st place y marry?
just go family court to file for your wife n child maintenance. dont think too much. One step at a time. Once your maintenance is fixed, you can decide to work, divorce. Focus on your maintenance n child. God bless you
And if you are asking for advise from the court personnels, etc.. make sure you have asked the correct person. =)
can be quite tedious to file in person...
any mummies try apply from legal aid before?
