Grounds for the divorce

The applicant can get an exemption from the requirement of 3 years of married life in certain circumstances. i.e.;

Exceptional hardship

One of the common grounds for ending a marriage is exceptional hardship. In this case, the person has to prove that he/she is not able to continue the married life due to intolerable circumstances like cruelty or unjust behaviour. The court may allow you to proceed for the divorce considering this reason even if you have not completed 3 years of your married life.

Irretrievable breakdown

Apart from the prerequisites and requirements, there can be some other grounds on which you can apply for the divorce. They are called irretrievable breakdown and includes adultery, unreasonable behavior, desertion, and separation.

Even willing to meet up with clients on weekends just to sort out the matter. Mr Wahab and team was easy to talk to and always without fail will get back to the client regarding any doubts/queries we have. Fighting a one sided battle against womens right in singapore is a hard one but engaging Mr Wahab services paid off eventually where the decision was a positive outcome indeed for me.

  • I have never regretted my decision to engage Mr Wahab from the A.W Law LLC for my Syariah proceedings. My case was badly handled by another solicitor and Wahab made it a breeze for me. He addressed every issue i had professionally & promptly while making sure i was making the right, logical decisions that would benefit me as sometimes my emotions get in the way. He appeared to me to be knowledgable about the legal issues and demonstrated great communication skills too. Iam forever thankful to Wahab & his colleagues for helping me out during my tough times.
