Navigating Singapore's legal system

As you understand more about life in Singapore and settling into it, it's also a good idea to acquaint yourself with the island-nation's laws, legal framework, and justice system.

What you might need help with

Your new adventure brings with it a whole slew of new job contracts, property leases, and all kinds of official documents that you have to read carefully, understand, and accept. And that's just for starters. You might also be thinking of starting a business of your own. Or entering into partnerships with other people or companies. Or looking to protect yourself and your loved ones against misfortune.

Then, of course, there are all kinds of personal matters you have to deal with, formally. It could be about investing in property - back home, here, or elsewhere in the world. Or it could be about heritage and legacy. Or, sometimes, even your relationships. Whatever the nature of your tax and legal matters - professional, personal, business or general - the links below offer you a wealth of useful information, guides and ready-reckoners about the laws and courts of Singapore.
