About

Rebecca is an associate with Ann Tan & Associates, practising family law alongside with Dr Anamah Tan. Prior to joining Ann Tan & Associates, she was an associate with I.R.B. Law LLP where she similarly, practised family law. This has been her core practice since her admission to the bar in August 2017.

She has taken out and resisted numerous court applications including divorce, personal protection orders, applications for spousal and child maintenance, custody applications, relocation applications; and is well versed in Family Justice Courts and Syariah Court proceedings.

Rebecca was previously involved the following cases:

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

UTY v UTZ [2019] SGFC 32 – successfully obtained an order for her Client for the enforcement of maintenance (for the wife and the children) under a divorce order which had been place since 2004. The opposing party had gone incommunicado and had repeatedly evaded the payment of maintenance over the course of 15 years. During the 15 years, several orders were also obtained for the transfer of the opposing party’s CPF monies to her Client’s CPF account to set off the monies due to her Client under the original divorce order. 

UYQ v UYP (2020) SGCA 3 – succeeded on appeal and overturned a High Court Judge’s decision to make an adjustment of 7.5% (7.5% decrease for her Client and conversely, a 7.5% increase ofr the opposing party) to the average ratios awarded to parties for the division of the matrimonial assets. Following the appeal, the adjustment was reversed and the division was reverted back to the original ratios that the High Court Judge had originally found for.

Rebecca currently also sits on the Muslim Law Practice Committee (the Law Society of Singapore), the Young Lawyers Committee (the Law Society of Singapore) as well as the Family Justice Support Scheme (Law Society Pro Bono Services)

Good. Give very clear and detail advices. A lot of patiences

Chris see,

Soon after I married, I knew I had to divorce as my husband refused to be intimate with me. Before we married, he already started to be less and less attracted to me but I didn’t think it would be so bad. I appointed Rebecca and Bernard as my lawyers to advise me on how to end my marriage.

Through the both of them, I learnt that the marriage could be annulled, because of the “wilful non-consummation of the marriage” by my husband, and that there were advantages in getting an annulment compared to a divorce. They also advised me on how best to discuss things with my husband so that we could split amicably.

Rebecca and Bernard’s advice was very clear, and they were quick in preparing and filing the court documents. As I needed to be in court and to be questioned by a judge, I was quite scared at first as it was my first time. Thankfully, Rebecca and Bernard were very re-assuring, and explained to me what would happen at the court hearing. I like that they kept me updated on what was happening at each step.

With their guidance and their representation in court, I got an order for my marriage to be annulled and can now move on with my life. Glad to have had them on my side.
