Silvester Legal LLC is a boutique litigation and corporate firm with expertise from the best law firms in Singapore. You do not need to pay expensive lawyers for outstanding legal service. We prove that with every Client.
We advise and represent our Clients, who have grown with us. Over the years, they have become our partners. Silvester Legal’s growth is a testament to the quality of work that we do.
We know that we will only succeed if you succeed first.
From a 1-man firm, Silvester Legal LLC has grown to a small team of 6 within a short period of just 1 year. This is made possible because of the trust and recommendations from Clients as they helped to grow the firm.

Divorce and Family Matters
Silvester Legal helps its clients to obtain the rights they deserve, as efficiently and unbitterly as possible in matrimonial and Family Justice Court proceedings. We can assist in relation to a full range of children and family law matters including adoptions, divorces (both uncontested and contested divorce), child custody and access applications, Personal Protection Orders (PPOs), family violence, and division of matrimonial assets.
While we offer fixed-fee, uncontested divorces, we always ensure that all our Clients understand the process of a divorce, the cost of a divorce and what will happen once the divorce papers are filed. So even if you do proceed with an uncontested divorce, you will be fully advised as to what is going to happen every step of the way. Our uncontested divorce fees are competitive and we do not just treat your case like another form-filling exercise. You will be advised of your rights.
We will also aim to have the matter completed as quickly as possible. Every uncontested divorce is projected to be completed within 6 months of the date of filing. We make it simple by having a face to face meeting where we will clear all your doubts before you choose to proceed.
The lawyers of Silvester Legal LLC have been entrusted with Contested Divorce matters in the Family Court, High Court and Court of Appeal. We have extensive experience in divorce litigation involving care and control, custody, division of matrimonial assets and maintenance.
No effort is spared in ensuring that you are protected and advised every step of the way of the divorce proceedings. We also have experience in adoptions and annulments.
