Cheap and Affordable Lawyer for Divorce in Singapore
Getting a divorce is bad enough. Do you really want to spend a fortune getting an expensive divorce lawyer for your divorce?
With today’s technology, the divorce process in Singapore is now greatly simplified. For instance, lawyers and law clerks no longer need to physically submit documents in Court. Most Court documents are submitted electronically, via the Court’s elitigation system, where it takes minutes to upload and submit. In a world where fewer physical meetups are necessary, a lawyer’s time is saved and cost savings should be passed on to clients. Hence, it is perfectly possible to source for and hire a cheap and affordable lawyer for divorce in Singapore.
Tips for Hiring a Cheap and Affordable Lawyer for Divorce in Singapore
Look out for a fixed price package! A fixed price package (whether for contested or uncontested divorces) offer certainty in pricing and help you plan your budget. Seek clarity from your divorce lawyer. You deserve to know the total amount you are paying for (including GST, disbursements, Court filing fees, commissioning fees and documentation fee)!
While some may think that a fixed price package is only applicable for uncontested, simplified divorces, a cheap and affordable lawyer for divorce in Singapore should also be able to provide a fixed price package for contested matters- including breakdowns for different items.
Secondly, look out for the services provided by “cheap divorce lawyers in Singapore”. If you are filing for divorce, you are interested in getting a divorce certificate. If you are paying for a deed of separation, you are interested in getting a properly drafted deed of separation. If you are filing for an annulment, you are interested in getting an annulment certificate. Hence, check with the lawyer, if the amount you are paying will get you what you want. As long as the cheap divorce lawyer in Singapore is able to provide you with what you need (essentially the documents and outcome for you to move forward with life), that lawyer’s services will be sufficient for your purpose.
Hence, if you are able to pay S$900 for your divorce, why pay S$2000 or more for that same divorce certificate?
Filing Your Own Divorce?
The alternative to hiring a cheap divorce lawyer in Singapore is to file your own divorce.
While it is certainly possible to file your own divorce, it may not be practical for the following reasons:
- Unless you are a lawyer who specializes in divorce, you are not an expert in divorce. Hence, it is likely that you will make mistakes when filing your own divorce. This leads to more time and money wasted, as re-filing documents costs additional filing fees.
- Further, filing your own divorce does not mean that it is free. For instance, you have to pay for Court filing fees, commissioning fees and even transport fees to file the papers. Hence, getting a cheap and affordable divorce lawyer in Singapore who offers a fixed price package will mean that you get what needs to be done in a cost-effective manner.
- Finally, rejection of Court documents or errors in the terms of divorce just means that you will have to spend more time with your spouse rectifying the mistakes. Divorce is already a painful process and you will not want to spend additional emotional costs on the divorce.
