Can the Family Court grant a Divorce to a Muslim couple, or to a couple married under the Muslim law?

Posted under News Updates on 5 November 2018

Different Divorce laws in Singapore apply for couples married under Civil Law and Muslim Law.

The Family Court only handles Divorces for couples who are married under Civil Law.

The Syariah Court under the Administration of Muslim Law Act (AMLA) handles matrimonial disputes involving Muslim parties or persons who are married under Muslim law.

You cannot apply for a Divorce in the Family Court if you or your spouse are Muslims, or were married under the Muslim law.
