About

Rebecca was admitted as an Advocate and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Singapore in 2017.

She is well-versed in Family Justice Courts and Syariah Court proceedings and has practising in all levels of the Singapore Courts.

Some of the cases Rebecca was involved in previously include the following:

1. Landmark Court of Appeal case of ADP v ADQ (2012) SGCA 6 which found that the Singapore Courts have the jurisdiction under the Women’s Charter to order the division of matrimonial assets and payment of maintenance even if the marriage between parties was found to be void.

2. UTY v UYZ (2019) SGFC 32 – successfully obtained an order for the enforcement of maintenance (for spouse and children) under a divorce order. The adverse party was incommunicado and had repeatedly evaded payment of maintenance over the course of 15 years.

3. UYQ v UYP (2020) SGCA 3 – successfully overturned the decision of the High Court to make an adjustment of 7.5% to the average ratios awarded to parties for the division of matrimonial assets. The adjustment resulted in a 7.5% decrease in her client’s share of the matrimonial assets and conversely, an unjustified 7.5% increase in the adverse party’s share of the matrimonial assets. Following an appeal on the matter, the adjustment was reversed and the division was reverted to the ratios that the High Court had originally determined.

4. VMA v VMB (2020) SGFC 88 – successfully resisted an application to set aside a by-consent Order of Court (pertaining to ancillary matters).

Rebecca has been of great help throughout the whole process of getting a divorce. She was responsive, knowledgeable and able to explain the whole process very well in a clear manner. Most importantly, she was empathetic and was very comfortable to speak to.

Would highly recommend her.

James,

Rebecca is professional, reliable and knowledgeable, but at the same time empathetic and supportive. I can trust her completely with my case!

Jenny,

I was referred to Rebecca by a friend who is also a lawyer. My friend had only good reviews about her, and my friend was right.
Rebecca helped me through my divorce procedures. She was very patient and helpful throughout which made the whole process much easier.
She was very professional in attending to my needs as well as mediating communication with my ex. The whole process was quick and efficient, with updates throughout. I really liked how pleasant and approachable Rebecca was, it helped me to feel at ease and comfortable in voicing out any of my needs and concerns. Having to go through with the divorce is already something difficult but with Rebecca’s professionalism and efficiency, everything was seamless.

Yeo.,

I was put through to Rebecca when I called to enquire about divorce proceeding. Rebecca made me feel comfortable and assuring during our conversation, thus I decided to engage her to handle my divorce matter. Rebecca is professional and provides advice that is in the best interests of her client. We worked well together and managed to finalize my divorce fairly quickly and fuss-free. Thank you, Rebecca!
