Married in Thailand - how to divorce ?


thaibutch

Recommended Posts

I got married in Thailand 10 years ago, wife came to the UK and now has indefinite leave to remain. Last year we separated and now we want to divorce. How do we do this easily and quickly ? Both on friendly terms and no issue on assets etc... Just need the paperwork sorted . Anyone experienced this and can advise me please ? I assume it will be easier to do in Thailand, and a lot cheaper .

i was in a similar situation to you 10 years ago and we got divorced at the banglamung amphur. because all the finiancal issues were agreed between ourselves it was simple and straight forward, in was done in one afternoon visit.

as for the paperwork needed now you would have to check with someone in the know, but then it was straight forward.

and yes it is alot easier and cheaper to do in thailand

Typically you need to divorce where you are currently residing, the UK. Where you got married only is an issue of being a recognized legitimate marriage where you reside.

The last time we were in Thailand we had to go to the local government office to get my wife a new ID card. A couple walked in just ahead of us that were getting a divorce. they too had already agreed to everything and how everything would be separated and had no children. they were divorced and out of there before my wife got her new ID card.

You should get your divorce in the UK even though it is more expensive. A problem in Thailand is that Thai lawyers will team up with the girl and cheat the farang. There was just a big thread dealing with this topic. Since the documents are in Thai, you don't know what is going on. Also, Thai courts will not protect you.

Not all Thai women are out to cheat people. In his situation it would appear that a divorce here is better as it is easy and quick just as long as both parties agree. No need for lawyers--just bring the marriage certificate and other required documents.

 

If there is any expense at all, it will be minimal--maybe a hundred baht or so.

for my divorce, i use the service of my lawyer, i don't want to headache a lot.

so i paid him 4000 bath, he prepare all the paper, me and my ex wife bring him all the marriage paper, passeport copy, and  home bill, after that ,from pattaya , we go to Bemglamung office.

he make some copie, after we too ka ticket, and wait our turn..

we sit down in front of the mayor, he read something i nthai, ask us to sign, and that's it...simple as we marry...

but we didn't make marriage contract, maybe it's different.

i can give you the contact informations of my lawyer
