Thai Will and Testament
The news of someone’s death is always traumatic; the effect can be even more severe if a loved one has passed away. It is important to draft a Thai last will and testament to avoid any disputes that could arise among family and loved ones.
Thai Will – Important Distinction
It is essential to give your family the maximum protection by preparing your last will and testament both in your home country and Thailand. There are certain complications and complexities associated with the property that is owned in Thailand that may land one’s loved ones in some legal hassles after they have passed away. For example, a property that you have listed in the contract will hold value even if you haven’t lived in it. Hence, it is always a wise idea to avail the services of experts to form a Thai will. We, at Sunbelt Asia Legal Advisors, have a team of expert Lawyers in Bangkok that can help you in forming will as per the Thai laws which will ensure your loved ones are fully covered after you have passed away.

The reason you should opt for the best Law firm in Bangkok, Thailand, Sunbelt Asia Legal Advisors, for laying out a Thai will include our professional services that guarantee that drafting your will is a hassle free process.
In an event of a foreigner passing away in Thailand, their families are contacted to track down their will. However, if they don’t have a will in Thailand, it can be a stressful time for their families as they will have to get all their property related documents notarized, translated, and approved by the government. It can be a time consuming and stressful process. Having a Thai will in place will eliminate the troubles for your family and ensure your assets will be transferred in the right hands.
In case there is no will in place, as per the Thai Law (CCC Article 1629) the financial assets are disrupted among the family members in the order of priority listed below. However, if that person was married the law states that half of their property must be transferred to their spouse before the further distribution of their assets.
- Descendants (children, adopted children or grandchildren)
- Brothers and sisters
- Half brothers and sisters
- Uncles and aunts
