Divorce Counselling in Singapore | Guidance From Qualified Professionals

Marriage Counselling

Divorce is never easy – emotionally or legally. Divorce is a complex process involving much conflict and uncertainty. Your divorce may prove to be one of the most emotionally disruptive events of your life.

What are the common stages of grief during divorce?

The 5 stages of grief during divorce are often known as:











However emotions can vary based on your circumstances which might involve the division of matrimonial property, historical family conflict, child custody, maintenance (alimony) etc.

Thus, few know what to expect at the beginning of divorce proceedings. Sometimes, our emotions get the better of us and it becomes frustrating and tiring to continue. You simply want to move forward in life, put an end to the episode and  obtain a desirable outcome amidst the uncertainties.

Often in divorce proceedings,  family judges will order couples to attend marriage counselling before you can finalize a divorce in Singapore. One such counselling programme is the Mandatory Parenting Programme (MPP), which is a one-off counselling session run by the Ministry of Social and Family Development. Parents to children below 14 years of age are involved then there could be further issues involved in the divorce process such as The Mandatory Parenting Programme.

The divorce process can be complex and create much emotional turmoil.
