Spousal support and child maintenance after divorce

Postby nanana » Fri, 26 Apr 2013 3:48 am

Just wonder if anyone here know what is the procedure to apply for adjustment for wife and children support due to circumstances changes post divorce?
Do I have to go through lawyer everytime?
And what is the success rate?

My case: divorce not yet finalized. Maintenance ex offered is not enough for me and 2 kids. I'm just too tired n don't want to drag the case any longer. Contemplating to just accept his terms and apply for adjustment later.. Any advice?

Thanking all for ur input in advance.

No idea in Singapore, but if you're too tired now, why do you think it will be easier later? I would suggest based on my experiences you make sure you're happy with what you get now and make no plans to try and change it later. You'll be facing an uphill battle.
