    Thanks for the interesting FAQ about child custody and maintenance! It’s interesting that when it comes to Singapore the laws are based on contributions made by both parties to the marriage. Interestingly, under Singapore law, care and control are usually granted to mothers rather than fathers. And when the child is older, they can decide who they want to be with. I’ll try looking into this more but under the US laws. I’ll try learning as much as possible too from a divorce attorney. I’d try to relay my info to my friend and see if he can use it.
