Divorce rights and obligations

In Thailand

Last Updated: Sep 20, 2022

I am Dutch and married for 13 years with a Thai wife. Over the past 10 years we lived outside Thailand as I was an expat. From our marriage we have a daughter of 10 years and is studying at the international school. We have a house in Chiang Mai under my wife's name but totally financed by me. Before starting the divorce process I would like to know what my rights and obligations are.

It depends on your relationship,  will you leave on good terms with her? If yes, it will be easy. All common properties will be separated into half. Some properties can not be separated, for example, a car or a motorcycle. Who wishes to keep it, if she wishes to keep it, she should give you some cash for the car's price. For the land, you can add your daughter's name to the deed.

Incase of foreigner husband and Thai wife under Thai law, the marriage property will be forced by hasband's country law accept that  property is the real estate which will be forced by the local law. If you married in Thailand and will be divorce by both consent at distric office in thailand, you can ask your wife and writing an agreement at that day to sell the the real estate for sharing money. But if you cann't set an agreement, you may file a lawsuit to the court house in Thailand for the next step.
