Divorce in Thailand

 

Divorce in Thailand is often classified into two types of divorce procedures. Divorce by Mutual Consent (very easy to complete) and a Contested Divorce (complex and costly). The divorce by mutual consent is usually completed at the local district office in Thailand where the couple had registered their marriage while the contested divorce is done at the courts. 

In either type of Thai divorce, you will need a lawyer’s assistance to assist you at the district office or court proceedings. A family lawyer can also draft the necessary agreements needed in a divorce by mutual consent which will govern the couple’s properties, custody of the children, maintenance of the spouse, and the like.
