I am a father of 2 kids, 40 years old and I have been going through a bad marriage for the last 6 -7 years.
Recently my wife got a PPO against me.
I didn’t commit any violence, but still the court awarded PPO. At the time of PPO hearing I didn’t product any evidence to prove my innocence as I knew I didn’t do anything wrong.
She has also filed a maintenance application and the same was heard the next day of PPO hearing.
The judge heard the maintenance case but was running short of time so held the judgment for a week. On the judgment day, the court issued an order to pay maintenance of $2000 with arrears of $6000!!
I have been jobless for almost a year and have been surviving on personal loans.
In the past. we bought assets overseas with my savings in her name.
The assets are valued over a million Singapore dollar.
She didn’t disclose any of those assets in her application for maintenance. I did tell the court that she is not disclosing her assets to the court. The original papers of the assets are with her only.
On the judgment day, I managed to get the evidence of assets and their valuations but it was too late. The judge didn’t allow me to say a single word on that.
She now has a protection order so I have to voluntarily leave the house which again is contributed fully by me. The reason I left is to avoid any further complications.
A call to police and I am behind bars!
Jobless for almost a year, in debts, depression have no control on the assets bought from my savings and also homeless!!!! And need to pay maintenance with 3 months arrears!!!!
I don’t know what to do. We are living a separated life under one roof for 5-6 years.
She is also not willing to go for a divorce. So the only option for me is to send her a notice and contest it.
I am a PR and she is my dependent PR.
If I don’t pay maintenance court will send me a summon and there I may get a chance to show the evidence of assets(property) overseas which she didn’t disclose.
Will the judge consider it?
Thanks and regards,
