Making a Living or Last Will Testament with Thai888 Law 2021

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.

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 !

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 info@thai888.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.

Appointment

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.

Summary

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.

2020 lets hope its a good decade. Thai888 Law and Abroad Funerals Pattaya

This post is in no way to undermine Government initiatives in dealing with the Covid issue.

2020 has turned out to be a year of misdirection, misinformation, bankruptcy, psychological damage, censorship in an unprecedented massive scale, fines for not adhering to the unscientific laws and no transparency. It has been shut up or the law will shut you up!! And this was done as no one really new where this event was heading. However, scientists at the front line were opening stating that there was no pandemic and they were labelled conspirators and anti vaxxers – and now these same professionals are being proven right as you can see below

The media has fanned this event to unbelievable heights and scared the vulnerable into pleading for a vaccine at any cost. All the normal testing procedures and the long term effects of the new untested mRNA nano based vaccine have not been adhered to as people are desperate for a vaccine

However, 1000s of doctors and professors are banned, censored, shut down and some even died for their views on Corona 19.

As the year unfolded and now into 2021 many of the truths are finally coming out and the lies the media told us are being undone with fact and sciences

For a start we were assured that our DNA was safe and not altered in any way by the vaccines (by the way they are gene altering drugs and not registered as vaccines). If you dared to question the safety you were vilified, censored, shut down, banned by Facebook, Twitter, Youtube – now later we get proper scientific reports here from Jan 2021

Now in Jan 2021 here is a report proving that our DNA is in fact altered and this was known to people associated with the hysteria from CDC WHO etc. However with millions of doses of the vaccine already inside the bodies of ill informed humans we just need to see what will happen.

One apparent side effect is that the vaccine does make the body react and produce antibodies, hence the sore arm, headaches and associated lethargy (several other effects and sometimes death). However what is expected that when the body is infected later with another coronavirus like the seasonal flu then the bodies immune system over reacts and goes into  “cytokine storm,” 

The body overreacts as it has nano based “vaccine” and goes into overdrive and  causes more damage to its own cells than to the invader it’s trying to fight. Link

Another myth debunked was that Vit D didnt help however this has now been disproven and it does help. Besides its natural and if it helps why not take it? Why ban posts for suggesting anyone look after their immune systems? if it doesnt hurt then take it just in case it works, but no this news was banned and censored from people and they were steered towards the vaccine (that want even on the market!!) Link

I watched this SARS vaccine video from 60 mins and again this was hyped from the media to such an extent that people were lining up for a shot and this was totally not needed as the SARS epidemic DID NOT EVENTUATE

https://video.canund.com/watch/doctors-around-the-world-issue-dire-warning-do-not-get-the-covid-vaccine_YrYRfO9PRVCK8vI.html A few of the 1000z of doctors virologist epidemiologists professors giving their professional opinions, however they are being censored by FB, Google, YouTube and governments around the world

Finally these pandemics has peaked and fizzled out many times – think AID’s, SARS, MERS, Common seasonal flu, H1N1 and behind the scenes has been Doctors professors hospitals relying on grants to survive (think the Tabaco debacle where all the doctors said nicotine is not addictive) later to be proven wrong and massive fines

Last, when I was a kid this appeared in Australia on TV to scare everyone that we were all going to die from AIDS – it was terrifying for kids as you can see by the images – not only was everyone scared children that had an immune disorder were banned from school. Well kids do get immune system disorders and life if sad sometimes as some dont make it. Have a look at this pandemic as some died but again they died from many disorders but AIDS or a corona virus was blamed. Now in Australia the Government has destroyed the economy and the debt is now approaching 2 trillion dollars and this will take 8 generations of children to pay it back. All for what?

I understand there are many out there will potentially compromised systems and you need hope in a vaccine however the first line of defence is your own body. Exercise, eat right, take vitamins, have no stress as that will kill you, enjoy life and get out there and get some sunshine.

Whats AIDS propogander “the grim reaper” imagine what this does to a kids mind? click THIS IS HOW THE MEDIA works and so dont listen to them or no all forum type of people – get info from reliable scientists (check WHO and CDC and UK gov websites as they are continually updating there info as most of it has been revised)

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.

Alzheimer’s or just getting old Thai888 Law Funeral

Alzheimer’s who will help out. How to make a Will directive for carers.
Thai888 Law knows what to do.

I tend to forget sometimes that I am dealing with real living people and their emotions and bodies. Making a Will or enforcing a Living Will after doing it hundreds of times makes it sometimes impersonal and robot-like. After all, it is a legal document. But for some they want their legacy to live on through a charity or helping their Thai partner, their family or sometimes even the gardener or the cook.

When a Will is made it normally stats that the person making it is of sound mind. However, my experience lately is that some of my clients have or are developing Alziemers. These people are elderly and living alone.

Alzheimer’s is a dreadful decease and most debilitating. And the worst is that each day it shows and the person forgets many things, even why they are in my office.

The disease gets to a point where the person needs 24-hour care. Care that is not really available in Thailand and so the person takes whatever assistance they can get. Someone to just be there in case.

The carer may mean well but they have no experience in looking after someone with Alzheimer’s. None.

I am not saying this of all carers but one client has an awful lot of money missing from their account. The carer was given the PIN number and access as sometimes the client cannot get out of bed and needs supplies. Each day several withdrawals have been made.

A lot of trust is needed here. It’s not easy and what else can one do in this situation?

If you know someone in this position then get them to make a Will whilst they are still competent.

Also, try to make them understand that someone needs to look after their accounts, someone trustworthy.

If the person has a large estate or more than 2 bank accounts, get them to start reducing all things down to a manageable size. 2 bank books – 1 fixed interest and the other day to day should be enough. And don’t forget the 800K in the bank for Immigration. And to go every 90 days and to apply for your visa every 12 months.

Not easy when you can’t remember much at all.

I did not ever expect this to be part of my job. However, I can help in a few ways. I am the controller of property for may clients, meaning that should something happen I can control the asset if it is for a person under 20 years old.

I can help if you have a Living Will or the Last Will and I am the Executor.

I cannot help if you have nothing in place and no next of kin.

Therefore I ask you to make a Will and make sure that a trusted 3rd party has your access codes and PIN numbers – and I don’t mean the gardener or the cook as the temptation is too great.

Please act on this before its too late. info@thai888.com

Thai888 Law Company review

Our client wanted to post this however did not have a Google account and so they have allowed me to post it here.

Hello again Mr. Bamfield,
    It is my pleasure to hear from you again, and my honor to write a review for you. I am going to send you the review, in red, in this email, for you to look over.

So my question to you is: is there somebody in your Thai888 Law and Funeral Services Company / office that can post this review using their Google account? My review is truly heartfelt, and will come across as such, so I do not think that the user name would be an issue. I think any first name would be fine, without the need to use a last name. If that is a problem, I will get another SIM card and open the Google account. I want to do this and I will get it done, so please inform on this point.

Here is the review. I put much thought into this because I wanted the review to have an impact.

Thank you also for the Pattaya City expat club recommendation. I will urge Diane to attend it on Sunday (I am currently in Rayong, as Diane went to Pattaya for an art class).

REVIEW:
Attorneys, dentists, and mechanics : We all need them, but negative stereotypes and past experiences have led us to subconsciously to avoid them, until absolutely necessary. As overseas expats, this problem is compounded by both the language barrier and general unfamiliarity of being in a foreign country.

In the West, people hold their breath nervously, as each second that passes in consultation with a lawyer costs serious money (along with any follow-up correspondence from even low level people). The exact opposite is true here: I was quite surprised at how generous Kelvin was with his time, out of basic human kindness. In fact, Kelvin even contacted local authorities about a unique situation that I had, without even being asked to do so, at no cost to me. All costs were more than reasonable, and spelled out clearly. Other law offices that I had misfortune of dealing with wanted exorbitant fees for even the simplest of paperwork, simply because they could get away with it in a foreign land, and because they spoke English.

Of course, having the job done correctly is the primary concern, and I was impressed with his attention to detail. My gut feeling tells me that this will be done right. I also know that he is reachable and responsive at all times, should I need to contact him. Kelvin has been here for 19 years, so he knows the lay of the land quite well. Did I mention how genuinely warm, friendly, and human he was? Again, that is one of those gut feel issues that intuitive people latch onto.

I never thought that I would be honored to write an upbeat appraisal for someone doing this Probate work, but here we are. Now if I could only find an honest dentist…?

Google Business Thai888 Monkhouse website

A unique combined law company and funeral director services. Sounds weird however if you have ever had to deal with someone passing away and the legal issues associated with it then you will see the login in making 1 office manage all. 

Many times Thai888 Law get the midnight call and then we make a few calls and things start to happen. We keep the family fully informed of the process and what documents are needed.

Most of these calls are from relatives overseas. They explain that because of health issues, or family, or work, or costs that they cannot come to the funeral or look after things in Thailand. 

Thai888 Law and Monkhouse works with the family to arrange the funeral and then apply to the courts for Probate.

Its not easy for the family however thats why Thai888 and Allison Monkhouse combined to do the work for you – even though you cannot come to Thailand we do everything for you so that its like your here. We can arrange videos of the funeral and cremation or a live CHAT if you request. Or a sea ashes burial.

Please book mark our contact details or email now info@thai888.com
