The Family Justice Courts (FJC) are established pursuant
to the Family Justice Act which was passed by Parliament on 4 August 2014. The Family
Justice Act was enacted based on the recommendations of the Committee for Family
Justice which was formed in 2013 to review how Singapore’s family justice
system may be reformed to address the needs of youth and families in distress.
FJC is a restructure of our court system to better
serve litigants. By bringing together all family-related work under a
specialised body of courts, we would be able to frame disputes from the perspective
of families and the individuals within. This is in contrast to other types of
cases which are traditionally dealt with in an adversarial manner. In addition,
we would be able to provide a suite of family specific services, enhance
processes and identify relevant training programmes that develop family-specific
skills in judges, lawyers and other family practitioners.
The “Family Justice Courts” is the collective name
for a body of courts which comprise the Family Division of the High Court, the Family
Courts and the Youth Courts. These Courts are administered by the Presiding Judge
of the Family Justice Courts. The Family Justice Courts will hear the full
suite of family-related cases including all divorce and related matters, family
violence cases, adoption and guardianship cases, Youth Court cases,
applications for deputyship under the Mental Capacity Act, and probate and
FJC deals with cases involving the following legislations:
