What are the divorce lawyer fees to get divorced in Singapore?

In Singapore, divorce fees are categorized into two main types: uncontested and contested divorces. Individuals seeking affordable legal representation may consider searching for "cheap contested divorce lawyers," "cheap lawyer in Singapore," or "cheapest uncontested divorce."

Uncontested Divorce: This occurs when both parties reach an agreement on all terms of the divorce, including custody, division of assets, and maintenance. The process is generally quicker and less expensive, making it an ideal option for those seeking the "cheapest uncontested divorce." Legal fees for uncontested divorces typically range from S$1,500 to S$3,500 or more, excluding disbursements and GST (Goods and Services Tax).

Contested Divorce: This arises when the parties cannot agree on certain terms, necessitating negotiation or litigation. Contested divorces tend to be more costly and time-consuming. However, by searching for a "cheap contested divorce lawyer" or a "cheap lawyer in Singapore," individuals may find legal professionals offering competitive rates. Legal fees for contested divorces usually start from S$5,000 and can exceed S$30,000 or more, depending on the case's complexity and the lawyer's hourly rates. This excludes disbursements and GST.
