I did a presentation at the Pattaya City Expats Club on Sunday regarding Probate and the pitfalls.
As soon as the video is available I will post it as there was some good facts in there and 4 case studies on what can go wrong with Wills and Probate.
Thai888 Law is now a complete office for making Wills, arranging funerals and cremations, applying to the courts for a Grant of Probate, repatriating funds back to the Beneficiaries.
The last 3 clients did not even come to Thailand and simply instructed us via email, SKYPE, phone to carry out their wishes. Family and friends can not always come to Thailand to arrange things and so we make sure everything is taken care of.
Embassy, hospital, release letters, translations from the Dept of Foreign Affairs, bank accounts, selling assets, selling house and condominiums are some of the issues we control from our 2 offices.
Contact us should your need our services. Thai888.com
Thai888 Law are also offering full funeral and cremation services from one of their two offices in Jomtien. This is one office that can make a Living or Last Will, arrange a full funeral, get docs from embassies, police, morgue and hospitals. Letters of release, next of kin letters to the Embassy, notarisation and translations from the Department of Foreign Affairs, Apostille Docs, International Legalised Docs, repatriation of remains or ashes, apply for a Grant of Probate, Act as your Executor or Surrogate, sell assets in the estates and send money back overseas to the Beneficiaries.
This is all arranged and managed by Thai888 Law Company Thailand.
Sad news for another Expat and his passing in Pattaya.
Jerry was a friend and a valuable member of the PCEC Board. Jerry passed quietly in his sleep.
As was urged at the PCEC last Sunday. It was highlighted that Lawrie Mcloughlin (another PCEC member) passed in April 2017 without a Will and this has caused Jerry Dean Obituary thai888 law Pattaya PCEC many issues and delays.
Jerry Dean had a Will and this makes it easier on the ones left behind.
This week Probate was finished for a man that died in Chiang Mai. I flew up with the team a few months back and gave testimony in the court as the children did not want to come to Thailand to administer the estate.
The Judge was most accommodating and allowed the children ( the Beneficiaries ) to resign and then appoint me as the Executor.
There were several cases on the ticket that morning and Thai888 Law was number 7. However, the Judge bumped our case and so we were number 1.
There was very little to the estate and it was not complicated. However, the bank account could not be closed until we had a court order.
Thai888 put everything in place and arranged for the bank (after signing several forms) to post a check to my bank.
After this was cleared I arranged for my bank to pay the 3 Beneficiaries – again many forms as the money was leaving Thailand and under the money laundering act we need all sorts of clearances.
The money landed in the Beneficiaries accounts a few days later.
I was absolutely distraught at the thought of having to deal with my fathers funeral in Thailand, And I only had one week to get things sorted as I had to return to UK and my work! I didn’t speak the language or know the law but Kelvin at thai888 law, was the most patient, kind and knowledgable person who speaks English as well as having the benefits of his working partner being Thai, proved to be the most effective team going. I cannot recommend their services highly enough. Carrie

My USA attorney strongly wanted me to get a Thai will. I found Kelvin to be easy to talk with….and quite professional. After several letters between the two attorneys we had a workable will. What I knew was that I knew I was in good hands….and enjoyed the experience!

Thai888’s legal advice is coherent and consistent. Kelvin and Jeab cut thru the confusions that happen in a multilingual environment. My husband and I are very satisfied with their work for us. Having documents in both Thai and English is most advisable when dealing with the courts here.

I was buying a condo in central Pattaya. I used Thai 888, Kelvin and Jeab were really helpful, They helped me with opening bank accounts, checked everything over and handled the transaction for me. They have a legit office over in Jomtien and I was supplied with all the documents including an English transaction. It was money well spent.
