Ancillary Matters Pertaining To Divorce

All divorce writs are first heard in the Family Court in the State Courts. After an interim judgment for divorce is granted, ancillary matters such as child custody and maintenance are looked into. If there is a dispute regarding the division of matrimonial assets exceeding S$1.5 million, the case and all its outstanding ancillary matters is transferred to the High Court for settlement and conclusion.

When a case is transferred to the High Court, a Pre-trial Conference will be arranged for parties to receive directions to ensure that the case is ready for hearing before a High Court Judge. No court hearing fees are payable for family cases.

After all ancillary matters are concluded, the High Court will issue a Certificate of Making Interim Judgment Final and the divorce is confirmed.
