Rebecca Vathanasin is an Associate with Quahe Woo & Palmer LLC.

Rebecca graduated with a Bachelor of Laws LL.B (Hons.) from the University of Manchester in 2014 and was admitted as an Advocate and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Singapore in 2017.

Rebecca has been involved in numerous court proceedings including divorce, personal protection orders, spouse and child maintenance, custody and relocation applications, and applications under the Mental Capacity Act. She is well-versed in Family Justice Courts and Syariah Court proceedings.

 

Rebecca was involved the following cases:

 

  • Landmark Court of Appeal case of ADP v ADQ (2012) SGCA 6 which found that the Singapore courts have the jurisdiction under the Women’s Charter to order the division of matrimonial assets and maintenance even if the marriage between parties was found to be void.
  • UTY v UTZ [2019] SGFC 32 – successfully obtained an order for her client for the enforcement of maintenance (for the wife and the children) under a divorce order which had been place since 2004. The opposing party was incommunicado and had repeatedly evaded payment of maintenance over the course of 15 years. During the 15 years, several orders were also obtained for the transfer of the opposing party’s CPF monies to her client’s CPF account to set off the monies due to her client under the original divorce order.
  • UYQ v UYP (2020) SGCA 3 – successfully overturned a High Court Judge’s decision to make an adjustment of 7.5% to the average ratios awarded to parties for the division of the matrimonial assets. Following the appeal, the adjustment was reversed and the division was reverted to the ratios that the High Court Judge had originally found for.
