Cross-Border Divorce has become increasingly common in Singapore and has resulted in the “trailing spouse” phenomena, where a spouse having care and control of the children is unable to move and live in the country of their origin without the ex-spouse’s consent and it could amount to child abduction
This project is the brainchild of Ms June Lim of Eden Law Corporation, This project is an initiative to make accessible, legal help to spouses to overcome the legal challenges to obtain court consent to return to their countries of origin with their children for the welfare of the children.
