Grounds for Divorce:

In Thailand, there are several grounds for divorce, including:

1. Adultery: If one spouse commits adultery, the other spouse can file for divorce.

2. Unreasonable Behavior: This includes actions by one spouse that make it intolerable for the other spouse to continue the marriage.

3. Abandonment: If one spouse deserts the other for more than a year, the deserted spouse can file for divorce.

4. Separation: If the spouses have been living separately for three consecutive years with mutual consent, they can file for divorce.

5. Criminal Conviction: If one spouse is sentenced to imprisonment for more than one year, the other spouse can file for divorce.

 

Legal Process:

The divorce process in Thailand typically involves the following steps:

1. Consultation with a Lawyer: It’s advisable to consult with a lawyer who specializes in family law to understand your rights, options, and the legal process.

ATa Outsourcing will provide you with a lawyer who will represent your best interests.

2. Filing a Divorce Petition: The spouse seeking divorce (the petitioner) files a divorce petition with the local district office (Amphur) where they are registered as residents.

3. Mediation: After the petition is filed, the court may require both spouses to attend mediation to attempt reconciliation.

4. Contested or Uncontested Divorce: If both spouses agree to the divorce and its terms (such as division of property and child custody), it’s an uncontested divorce. If there are disputes, it’s a contested divorce, which may require court hearings and a trial.

5. Judgment: If the divorce is uncontested or if the court rules in favor of the petitioner in a contested divorce, the court issues a judgment granting the divorce.

6. Division of Property: The court may decide on the division of marital assets and liabilities if the spouses cannot reach an agreement.

7. Registration of Divorce: Once the judgment is issued, it must be registered at the district office to be legally recognized.
