I just finished watching a short video on making a Last Will and Testaments and frankly I was a little confused by the jargon used, and so i think most of you would be confused as well. This is my job full time at Thai888 Law and so I hope to take any confusion out.
I live and work in the Pattaya area and know many people that have businesses, family and overseas assets that they want to protect should something happen to them.
Many people call and say its a simple Will and shouldn’t take to long or complicate things. It usually takes a few days to draft something for you and then after you’re OK it then we print it for you to sign. Most of the time things go well and occasionally not so well as if the Will is badly written there could be court cases later
What could legally go wrong
For a start trying to write your own Will is OK but what if you miss a word or a phrase or signature. This opens the door to court action later.
I did a talk at the Pattaya Expats Club (PEC) and the Pattaya City Expats Club (PCEC), in fact many talks, about Murphy’s Law and this is simply “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. But if the Will is properly written then chances are if it goes to court you will win.
The most important person in the Will
This would have to be the Executor as they are the managers of the Will after you die. They need to take the Will to court and give testimony to say they are a fit and proper person to manage the Will. This person in order to get to court has to apply through a Lawyer and the Lawyer gets a court date for them. They appear in Court and normally the judge gives them the power to go to the bank and close the accounts, go to the land office and change the name on the Chanote (Title Deed), sell the cars and bikes, pay the bills and donate items to charity. There is a lot of work and all the docs require a legal person, plus someone that speaks, reads and writes Thai. At Thai888 Law Company we have 2 offices set aside for this and have made Wills for 100’s of people from all over the World and in different languages.
World wide assets
Definitely DONT put this in your Will as there are something you need to talk to me about before you do. There are different laws around the World and so you don’t want the lawyers fighting over whos law to follow. There are tax issues as well. email me or call email@example.com Your assets if in Thailand don’t need to be mixed up with other countries issues.
Revoke other Wills
Another DONT, as if you have any property in another country, and a Will to cover it and it says revokes (takes away its power) all other Wills and Codicils (additions) then these maybe used to cause an issue in the courts, and the winners will be the Lawyers, Solicitors, tax man.
You dont need to pay big money for a Will
Thai888 Law has been making low cost, very affordable Wills for the Expat community for many years and our reputation for fairness is well known. Ask around and you will find our Wills and service very competitive. We have even been praised by the Australian Lawyers society for our bench make excellence and being able to Notarise the document for Australian Courts.
Staff at Thai888 Law speak, read and write Thai and English
Our staff work with you until you are satisfied with your Will in Thai and English. Once you approve the documents, we print, you come into sign in front of our 2 legal staff and a picture of you is taken. This proves that you were competent (in a healthy frame of mind and were not forced to make the Will) as later on your Will has to go to court and the Judge can see the picture.
First of all send me an email and I will send you a checklist of what docs we need to draw up and translate the Will. The checklist covers your property, who is the next of kin (NOK), who gets the property in your Will (Beneficiary), and who is the manager (Executor) of your Will, who to contact in Thailand and in your home country, your Embassy. All names, addresses and contacts are included and of course should something happen to any of the above, we list alternative people (this makes the Executors job easier) as well.
Making your friend the Executor
This might seem like and honor to nominate your friend however, its a lot of work and a lawyer has to be involved too, and in most cases they will resign from the role as they don’t have the knowledge or language to deal with these government departments. Resigning is another step in the court process and not necessary if you write the Will properly in the first instance.
Registering the Will
This is no longer necessary. You will receive a signed copy of the Will and the other goes to the Executor. Keep then in a safe place. We can scan your signed Will and send to other people involved.
Executor of the Will
I have heard people at the various clubs say the Lawyers acting as the Executors steal all the assets. I understand the Law and there are approx 66 of them that are concerned with the Will, the Executor, the Beneficiaries and the assets and so it is not easy to steal anything. There is a solution to this and so have a co Executor. As, in some cases the other co executor is over seas and cannot come to the court case in Thailand and the other Executor can act for them. Under Thai Law these people are responsible for each other.
Thai888 Law has another company called Abroad Funerals and together we can arrange everything from making the Will, the funeral, Court and sending the properties back to the people in your Will. No more running from company to company as we do everything, saving you time and money. AND all in English.
Thai888 Law has the experienced staff and reviews to make your Will properly. We have a full time Australian probate officer, that deals with Probate & Will issues all over the World. So call us for professional advise, as you never know and its always best to be prepared. Lastly you don’t want to government to get your hard earned property.
Thai888 Law started off as a small business venture has now become 2 companies working together under the same management to streamline the legal issues that come with a foreigner passing away in Thailand. This allows clients to make 1 phone call to arrange all things to do with hospitals police morgue funeral embassy court probate. This unique model has evolved over many years as Thai888 Law began with 1 rented office and 1 staff member. Now our 2 offices has qualified legal and accounting staff that completed their degrees whilst working for Thai888.
Many of our clients living in Thailand make Living and Last Wills with us and unfortunately many pass away and in the old days we would outsource the funeral to Monkhouse Funerals. Various problems ensued with this system and to better manage this we registered Abroad Funerals Pattaya. With side by side offices we can arrange and manage everything all the way through to court grants and sending the assets back to the families. No other company does this in Thailand and reviews on our website show 5 stars and thankful messagesfrom clients that also became friends during these stressful times.
Thai888 Law began with criminal, civil, company, consumer and family LAW and now we have several experts to focus your enquiries. If you like its a one stop for all your needs and our fees are on the lower side.

How to write a bad Will
Idiots guide to Will writing
The story is all to familiar in that a person to save a few bucks writes the Will themselves.
There are very specific legal terms like Testator, Beneficiary, Executor, Witnesses and if you dont know what they mean then dont write your own Will
Many English have accounts in the neighbouring countries to try to avoid the dreaded “Death Duties ” taxes of the United Kingdom and so in wanting to get the most return on money people save it in a tax haven country like the Isle of Man, Sheffield, Singapore, Hong Kong etc.
However the tax man has great patients and can wait until you die. Then the document you wrote comes into play to get the assets you worked so hard for and saved.
If the docs are not correct then your Beneficiary cannot get any of the assets you worked and saved. These offshore banks sit there while the Beneficiary or the Executor make challenges to get the money. They do not have to work with you and may ignore you.
It may take years.
You definitely will need legal assistance as there are many forms designed to find all the money and assets anywhere in the WORLD.
When writing your Will you should be aware of keeping assets in each country in a seperate Will – its not that expensive and will save thousands in legal bills and TAX.

Corona virus latest pathology reports on deaths or related illnesses
Dr. Stoyan Aleksov is Chairman of the Bulgarian Association of Pathology and as such participates in a seminar of the European Association of Pathology. The main conclusion of pathologists from Switzerland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain is that the coronavirus is not deadly. No one died of coronavirus! To say that a person has died of a coronavirus must establish an inflammatory reaction that led to death without any other life-incompatible diseases. There are no such cases.
NOW whether you believe it or not you should try to have an open mind to see why this is happening.
The first thing people will say is that we are promoting a conspiracy theory and this is not the case as we have questioned the numbers coming out since day 1. The rate of infection, the death rate, quarantine, lock downs and the human side to all of this. My work states that the true cause of death is on the Death Certificate and autopsy. Anything else is made up.
The media has been totally irresponsible in promoting, yes promoting this pandemic at every turn. Their numbers are proving to be totally false and misleading. The media is controlled by the richest people in the World and what they say is not questionned at all. You need to realise that reporters work for someone and if they dont toe the line they cannot get salary or sell their story. The greater the story the better it sells. So i understand this. In fact this is across the board in all associated related businesses. From the UN to WHO and all the politicians in all the countries. Doing their best for us or who or what??
If you dont understand this, you need to ask a simple question. Why has all the media giants in the World all aligned into this media mammoth = dont belive me then look at Facebook and Mark doing an hour live to can Trump – yet Facebook takes down advice on Vit D and how it can help your immune system fight off viruses. If you cant see the collusion and the misdirection here then you are not reading enough.
Each country has their own agenda for the virus and they should be applauded for their efforts in “keeping the curve low” and “social distancing”, and these key words will be written into many University study guides in the future. Text books will be written questionning the sanity of the 2020’s and how this event unfolded and who was responsible. People are against each other in fighting over wearing a mask, whether it works or not, its now symbolic of following orders. The QR code is another example, most people dont do it properly but make out to be doing it to conform. If they dont do it though there is some aggression and people are already stressed enough so dont resist at all.
I feel for the children and mum and dad wanting to protect them. But in a childs mind this is the time for developing many new connections for the future and the ones there making now may have devistation effects in the future. This is a cost that cannot be measured.
With most things known about the virus and who gains or loses from it, we must now follow the money as most other issues with death and causes has been exhusted.
In al the mayhem and pent up stress BLM rose up however BLM was planned since the 2013’s (Trayvon Martin and Mr Floyd was an event just waiting to happen to catapault BLM into the front page. Then BLM donations started to roll in for bail etc. however its gone now into the billions and this money can be traced back to the Democrats, so there is a vested interest in this for sure.
In the coming months before the US election in November I fear we will see many more bad things happen, unfortunately.
Last if you dont believe any of the above then ask yourself this question. 6 months ago if I told you this would happen would you have said yeh your right or no I am an idiot and that would never happen?
I thought I would drop you a line with some flattering news, I gave our Wills to an acquaintance of ours who does a lot of work on wills for a large group of Lawyers, I wanted to take out the word Thai in regards to probate as all our investments are in Australia, he said you can do it yourself by filling out a Codicil form, which I will do, the main reason for this email is to say he was extremely impressed to the high standard of our Wills, he went on to say the standard of our Wills was far higher than in Australia in fact he hasn’t seen better including the quality of the paper, so I thought I would pass on his comments to you and especially to Jeab (thai888 law Director) who I believe put our Wills together, it’s good to see that the work coming out of your office is world class, you should put this on your wall so prospective clients become aware of who they are dealing with.
Hope all is well with you and your Thai888 Law staff, we are keeping well over here, not doing much while this pandemic is around, Queensland is doing very well with no fresh cases for more than a month we are starting to see an ease of restrictions but until a vaccine comes along we all have to be very diligent, please give Jeab (Director) a hug from both of us and keep safe.
I felt stuck and was feeling defeated. I appreciate that you were able to give me some suggestions on how to move forward.
I want to express all my gratitude and I highly recommend you !
