A deed of separation sets out the date on which parties decide to separate, and the terms on which they shall organise their affairs during this period of separation.
Requirements of a deed of separation
You would need you to tell your Singapore divorce lawyer the terms upon which you and your spouse wish to separate.

– What are the access arrangement to the parent who does not have care and control of the child?
– What are the maintenance (i.e. financial) arrangements relating to the child?
– Is the wife to also receive a maintenance sum from the Husband?
