I'm no expert, but it would be helpful if you could clarify what an OA is. Also what is the connection between the 'IOU' (court ordered?) and the 'monthly payments'?wang12 wrote:I married my Singaporean husband in 2010. Last year my husband got a new job in country A and we have since relocated here. He is 40 years old and has no intention to return to Singapore ever since. He sold off everything before moving and the only thing left in Singapore is his CPF which he knows he will very much never see. Most of his friends and close relatives are not even in Singapore any more. 6 months after we left Singapore, his ex-wife succeeded in obtaining a bankruptcy petition against him for an IOU made 2 years ago. The OA has been wanting him to go back to file his Statement of Affairs and adhere to all responsibilities as a bankrupt. He has filed via post but the OA would not hear of it and even denied receiving it. He is also willing to make the monthly payments, it's just that he doesn't want to risk stepping on Singapore soil. My husband knows if he were to go back, it will be a long time before he can leave Singapore again, and he will definitely loose his current job. He has nothing to go back to and almost certain he will not be able to find a good job in Singapore. I am already 4 months pregnant and we want to have our life here. Even if it doesn't work out here eventually, we will go back to my country H which my husband also has full long term stay and employment rights. However his current Singapore passport expires in 2017. I am hoping that he will have PR status in country A by this year or PR status in my country H. However, it will take 7 years for my country to grant him, by which time his Singapore passport would have expired, so he might have an issue. Can anyone provide their views / feedback / advice? Will he be extradited if he ignores the OA?
Me thinks there is a mix up between an IOU and Personal loan and his maintenance fee (if such is still in place) for her lawyer to go berserkwang12 wrote:IOU amount is approx S$80k for personal loan to be paid in installment over 5 years. He was was paying faithfully for 8 months but stop paying because she demanded more and hounded me when she found out we were getting married. Later he tried to restart paying and replied with a revised payment plan (when her lawyer started demanding), but her lawyer denied ever receiving the response (ever with courier slip stating delivered) and she would not hear of any it, by which time we have already left Singapore. The lawyer then chose to file for a letter of demand followed by filing for bankruptcy against him to our previous residence. Not sure what ex-wife file under, but the OA document states that under Bankruptcy Act (Cap 20), he must file statement of affairs within 21 days, it has already past that. He is still a SGer currently. As for where I'm living currently, from your other post that I have read, in the same city as you (and/or your daughters).
