You can contact all our departments and officers (including the Insolvency Office, the Public Trustee's Office, the Legal Aid Bureau, the Community Mediation Centre and the Legal Services Regulatory Authority) via the Ministry of Law's online enquiry form (you can submit up to 30MB of documents in Step 4 of the form).
Sending us your enquiry or documents via the online form will help us to better track your enquiry and ensure that it is dealt with promptly. Please be assured that we will forward your enquiry to the relevant case officer or team as necessary. We will reply within 3 to 14 working days, depending on the complexity of your enquiry.
Bankrupts who wish to travel overseas should submit their travel application at least 14 days before their intended date of travel at our website http://www.mlaw.gov.sg/eservices/io/ (select 'Bankruptcy Travel Application').
If you require legal aid or advice, you can come to the Bureau during our office hours to make an application. Please bring along your Identity Card for the registration. Alternatively, you can make an online application here for selected subject matters.
If you are a minor (i.e. a person below 21 years of age), your parent or guardian must apply on your behalf.
If you have to travel frequently while you are still an undischarged bankrupt, you may apply for block periods of travel either for three or six months. Whether your trustee approves the application depends on a few considerations such as whether you are regular in the payment of your monthly contributions, the reason(s) for the proposed travel (e.g. for overseas employments), and the level of co-operation that you provide to the trustee. If the application is approved, you may travel as frequently as you wish during that period.Please submit all applications for your travel through www.mlaw.gov.sg/eservices/io (select 'Bankruptcy Travel Application') for your trustee's consideration. You should only travel after you have been informed by your trustee of the approval granted.
