    Hi All,

    I am planning to file divorce with my husband and I would like recommendation on good and sincere lawyer who do not charge a hike for contested divorce procedures.


    We have been living separately since May 2011, but we did tried to be together again in mid Jun 2012 which only lasted for one month. We do not owned any house, but we do have a daughter, which I would like to have sole custody. (My girl has been taken care by my family and myself, all this while when we are not together.)
    Relationship between us has been maintained friendly and positively with him providing monthly allowance since Jan/Feb 2012. However, he started ignoring my texts and did not pass me any cents since Dec 2015. He then later blocked my contact when I requested him to file for divorce, since he did not want to take care of any responsibilities.

    I am not able to get any replies from him, for months now. Therefore, I am expecting my divorce journey to be more complicated and draggy.

    I really appreciated if you are able to provide me with advice/recommendation on my case. Thank you in advance for your help!

    Hi Rainelle, sorry to hear your state of marriage and I just join this website otherwise, I would response to you asap. How's your divorce status now? I've self represented and helped several and know the how damn freaking divorce process like the back of my hand now. But first, are you Singaporean ? Are you a Muslim ? cos I know nuts about Shariah law.

    Hi Rainelle, here are some tips to look out for a good divorce lawyer.

    Firstly, you should look for a divorce lawyer with enough experience to provide you with sound legal advice to help you take on the best course of action on your marriage. You should feel comfortable talking and confiding to your lawyer. Your lawyer should take a genuine interest in your case and interact highly with you in finding the best way out.

    In the case you are entering into a contested divorce, you should make sure the charges are made transparent to you and that the services provided by your attorney are priced reasonably. Make no assumptions about any costs. Do also note that there is no such thing as a flat fee divorce unless your partner absolutely consents to divorce in your terms.

    You should focus on finding a lawyer with the right expertise to handle your case and not find a lawyer simply based on the size and brand establishment of the law firm.

    I happen to come across a few informative articles on divorce on this website. You may want to check this at
