Approval for divorced parents who has no custody of their kids to get a place of their own

I never find it a fair treatment to parents who are divorced and who do not have custody of their kids to not able to purchase or rent a flat in singapore just because of their age factor and d fact that they do nt hv the custody of their kids.They are still parent to their kids who needs a roof over their head so they could b able to bring their kids back to a place where they called home.Having to wait for them to reach 35 before they can purchase or rent a flat although they have kids which are not under their custody does not mean the government can deprived them of having their own place although they can afford to.Therefore this petition is for all single parents who are living apart from their kids yet are deprived from even bringing their kids back to a place they called home.

Age factor is not really a matter for single parents to be able to purchase their own flat if they can afford their finances.To nt have the custody of their kids is also not a factor for the government to deprived this single parents to having their own place to bring back their kids to a place they called home.Every single singaporean parent whether or nt they have the custody to their kids deserve a place they can call home where they can spent time with their kids.

I believe its all up to a case to case basis whereby the government themselves can assess if this single parent without custody can really afford to get their own place amd not by setting the age factor or custody factor.All it does is making this single parents spent more time apart from their kids because they do not have a roof over their head and how are they even supposed to spent that little amount of time they have with their kids when they do not even have a place to bring them back to..Empathy is all that is needed from the government to make this right.

Change the rules and be fair to all divorced parents to have their right to purchase or rent a flat.
