It is always better to reach an agreement regarding the division of assets and property because the law in Thailand follows a Community Property regime, where assets and property acquired during marriage are generally considered community property with ownership to both parties. The rules regarding division of property are complicated and the court will divide the property according to the law and the individual facts of the case.
There is always a possibility that a dispute regarding community property will arise. For example, let’s say a foreign husband has remitted money from overseas to buy land in his Thai wife’s name, but after signing the document, the land office tells him he has no right over that money.
We will advise you about your rights and represent your interests in court if the matter cannot be resolved by agreement.
