Corona Virus Thailand 2021 and how to legally protect

My work is made simple as Thai888 Law and Abroad Funerals has qualified staff to do the work for you. Corona has made it difficult in some ways.

We have in house qualified Lawyers, Funeral staff, Embassy contacts, police, hospital contacts and can arrange the cremation funeral repatriation by our own Abroad Funerals Company.

Corona Virus has destroyed 1000’s of businesses and peoples lives. For many months now many of our clients could not fly in to enjoy their condos, have a holiday, organise and attend a funeral for a friend or family member. It has been tragic and heart wrenching for many not being able to attend the farewell. Plus many pubs where people could meet for the “wake” were closed and so there were no stories and memories told.

Over the past year the families have asked me to do the speeches at the funeral cremation ceremony. Family and friends would send me emails of there friends life and funny times for me to read. My staff checked temperatures and wore masks and had the chairs spaced apart as per the law. As family and friends could not attend we did live video streaming and their reaction / feedback was wonderful (although there were up to 12 hours time differences). At least the family could see the farewell, the beauty of Thai temples that did the ceremony, the monks chanting and the water ceremony. On some occasions we even had Thai traditional dancing.

The main thing is that all can be arranged through us with a few calls and now with WhatsApp, Skype, LINE, Messenger, we can talk about the families wishes and all for free. Also, sending documents we need instantly for the family to print sign, scan and send back to us, is such am incredible advancement in technology.

Probate is where Thai888 applies to the court to manage the estate of the deceased

Due to Covid the courts have been closed for some months now and this has delayed many court applications and decisions. Before we could wait 3 months to get a court date and now this maybe longer. If this is the case and I am the Executor of the Will I personally advance the money to the hospital and all other bills that come in as we cannot wait to make the funeral happen. In some cases the family will transfer the money to us to clear the bill so that we can get all the documents we need to allow the funeral to progress.

One thing I have noticed is that due to Covid the amount of documentarian needed has increased and so please use an Executor to manage your Will properly as otherwise settlement will be delayed. Thai888 can be your Executor and please don’t listen to urban myths about Lawyers stealing all the assets as there are many laws to protect the Will, the Executor, the estate and Beneficiaries.

All Wills and the Executor have to be cleared by the court by testimony and then the court gives a Grant of Probate to unwind the estate and sell things, transfer property, close bank accounts.

The courts have made this process easier as the Executor is normally required to attend court however with Covid and not being able to fly in a Power of Attorney (POA) may be used instead.

It is a very complicated matter with the Police release, Hospital release, Embassy, Consulate, Letter of Release, transport, temple, cremation certificate, City Hall Death Certificate, translation, return of ashes. And this is just for the cremation. Probate is another matter and so take it seriously and do it the right way to save any issues or someone contesting the Will or the Executor. www.thai888.com https://www.facebook.com/pcecclub.org/photos/3521702087950845

Thai888 Law domain up and running

Monday saw all of our mail systems thai888.com down. We could receive emails but could not send as for an unknown reason. I called our domain hosting service Godaddy in Singapore. This did not help. It became its not our problem but they did try to help.

Email issues

The second call was to TOT Thailand and some techs came out on Tuesday. A few hours later they showed me a screenshot of the Singapore server rejecting thai888.com emails.

Godaddy or TOT

Call back to Godaddy in the USA, where nearly an hour later I was getting angry as no sleep for a day and no email for 2 days.

Again Godaddy rejected that it could be their Singapore servers, although I had the screenshot of the servers rejecting thai888.com mail!

So we have Singapore, Thailand, USA and me being an Australian trying to solve the blame game with me in the middle saying I have to run a company and staff and clients emails aren’t getting through.

In the end, it was not a Godaddy issue according to them nor TOT issue and so.

In the end, I did something very radical. I moved (migrated) our thai888.com domain and all things to the USA.

6 hours later I got a messaging saying migration was completed. Then I reconfigured all the mail and certificates for SSL to show USA domain hosting.

Abroad Funeral Services Company Pattaya Thailand

Once things settle down I plan to make Abroad Funeral Thailand Website.

Don’t forget that Abroad Funeral Thailand is designed to take the worry and hassle from learning that a friend or family member has passed away in Thailand. What to do? where to start, who to call first? +66 8 0102 8978 do they speak English? Don’t waste time and just call us.

All is well now and so my apologies for any inconvenience –

My IT background saves the day

BTW my prior life I was the IT manager of Central Queensland University in Sydney NSW Australia and with this knowledge, I was able to fix this international issue. And so I hope something like this doesn’t happen to you as without technical knowledge it would be hard to diagnose the problem.

2 day problem with thai888.com email, now sorted.

Galloper, Funeral, Pattaya, Probate, Insurance, Thai888 Law

A tough time for all involved and particularly as Gordon Halpin AKA “Galloper” and his wife Judy were friend of over 8 years.

As friends, we assisted from the beginning at the hospital, with the insurance company from Australia, the Police, and used Thai888 Law to arrange the funeral, cremation, insurance claim, and Probate. It was a very big day and thanks to all our staff and friends for making it so.

Here is the funeral of a big day for big Mr G at 6 foot 6 inches tall.

Living Will by Thai888 Law what is it and how to make one

A Living Will under Thai Law is part of Thai Law under Statute 12 of the CCC. Basically it gives you the opportunity when you are competent enough to make some advanced planning. 

Featured image

There are 2 condition where it can work. 1 is where you are in a terminal phase of illness and the 2nd is where you are brain dead through injury caused by an accident, stroke, or aneurysm.

Some call the Living Will and enduring Power of Attorney (USA) however it is specific to Thailand and so called a Living Will.

Our document is on the same page English and then Thai language. We do this as some of the hospitals have 2 separate documents and so one may be changed and we think if its one the same page then it cannot be changed and the Judge and or hospital can see what the Testator wished.

There are a series of boxes to request or deny treatment and the Testator should check them off.

There is whats called a Surrogate and this is either me or a friend that is strong enough to tell the hospital to carry our your wishes.

All is signed and witnessed by 2 people.

Basically you as the Testator are telling the hospital to deny treatment to keep you allow when there is no hope.

Pain killers to make you comfortable are what most people prefer.

If you want to talk about this or get more info then email or call.

I have one as I have no intent to stay on a machine with the meter ticking over. I would rather give the money to my heirs or a charity.
