The Family law of Singapore deals with several family legal issues in Singapore. It deals with adoptions, divorce, children's issues, division of matrimony property, personal protection orders and maintenance. The family court in Singapore oversees these legal issues.

Singapore has two separate and different sets of family law: one for Muslims and the other for everyone else. Family law for Muslims is codified in the Administration of Muslim Law Act. Family law for non-Muslims is codified in the Women's Charter.
