SINGAPORE - The Ministry of Law (MinLaw) is rolling out mediation help to parties in wedding events affected by Covid-19 restrictions.

The wedding must have been scheduled to take place between May 8 and July 31.

One example of a dispute is when the wedding couple and a vendor are not agreeable to a rescheduling or downsizing of the contract, written or otherwise, to provide goods and services.

Wedding receptions were not allowed from May 16 to July 11.

A trained professional appointed by the ministry will help to facilitate a settlement, if both parties agree to mediate, for free, voiding the need to resolve the dispute in court.

Interested parties may submit their requests at this website from tomorrow (July 14). The deadline is Sept 10.

MinLaw will aim to hold the mediation within two weeks of the request submission.

The session will generally be conducted virtually and take about two hours.
