When a husband marries his wife, his matrimoniorship becomes a legal contract, with the right to make all the decisions on the family’s affairs, according to the law.
According to the Law Reform Commission, there are two ways to get divorced in Singapore: by mutual consent, or by using a court order.
The first way is to file a divorce with the court after your marriage ends.
This way, you can have a “mutual consent” divorce.
The second is to get an order from a court ordering the divorce, or a divorce order.
If the divorce was made after the marriage ended, it will automatically take effect and a divorce decree will be made.
It’s important to note that the marriage contract can be annulled if the parties are divorced.
In most cases, the order to divorce is issued by the Court of Appeal.
The other way to get divorce is through the law and procedure, said Dr. Aravindu Ramakrishnan, senior lecturer at the Faculty of Law at the University of Singapore.
“The husband’s matriculate marriage was terminated by the courts because the wife had not given her consent,” Dr. Ramakanth said.
Dr. Ramachandran pointed out that there is no legal reason why a man cannot divorce his wife.
He explained that the wife can revoke the divorce decree at any time, but the husband has to follow the court order to stay out of court.
However, in some cases, like when a wife marries a man with a criminal record, he may want to divorce her if the husband is in prison, he said.
“If a woman divorces her husband by a court decree, he has to live with her.
If she divorces him through a court, she has to make an appointment with a lawyer to get the divorce order annullated,” Dr Ramachandr said.
If the divorce is made after your wedding, the divorce will be automatically void and your marriage will not be recognized.
While it’s normal to want to keep your marriage, it’s important that you understand your rights and responsibilities in your relationship with your spouse, Dr. Rambakrishna said.
If you’re not sure if you have rights to divorce your spouse in Singapore, you should speak with a divorce lawyer, he added.
