it's good... So the woman can take a good look at the guy before signing the papers and get stuck!! LOL...Channel NewsAsia - Tougher stance against defaulters of maintenance orders - channelnewsasia.com
"SINGAPORE : The government plans to introduce more measures to strengthen the enforcement of maintenance orders.
Dr Balakrishnan noted that a worrying trend is the increasing divorce rate and the consequences on those who are left in the lurch.
There is a need to strengthen enforcement actions to get divorcees to fulfil their obligations to their children and ex-spouses.
When the law gets more bite, defaulters will have to post bank guarantees to set aside funds against future defaults, face community-based sentences or can be ordered by the court to go for financial counselling.
Those who want to re-marry will have to declare how much they owe in maintenance payment.
Several Members of Parliament also spoke about another worrying trend - the rising trend of elderly parents coming forward to seek legal help about maintenance of parents issues..."
If the guy cannot pay maintenance to ex-wife... better dont let him re-marry.... else bring past problems to new wife and family...
But will Govt enforce it?
