You will need to get the Court’s permission to apply for a Divorce in Singapore if you have been married for less than 3 years.
You will need to prove to the Court that either:
- You have suffered exceptional hardship during the marriage; or
- Your spouse has behaved with exceptional depravity i.e. behaved extraordinarily badly.
The application to the Court is done by filing a formal application (called an Originating Summons) supported with a sworn statement (called an Affidavit) explaining the reasons for your application.
