Common Law in Thailand
Most of the time this is not recognised , however recently a Dutch man proved that he brought money into Thailand for the express purpose of building a house for his intended wife. The common law partner did not build the house and so the man took the matter to court and he won.
Keep your receipts says Thai888 law
When you bring money into Thailand for property you need a bank TT3. Why? because at some stage in the future you may need to sell you house and take the money out from Thailand. A TT3 for the same amount will let you do this. Also should you have issues then you can take the matter to court and produce the TT3 as evidence.
Pre Nuptial works with Thai888 Law
a prenup as they are commonly called simply states that what you bring into the marriage is yours and is not paid of the combined property and no claim is made on it, as both sign this doc and register it at the time of marriage. However whatever you make after marriage is considered 50/50 upon divorce. This include debts and so if either party runs up debts via gambling, accident, etc. then each party is responsible.
It is most important that you make a Will. A Living Will is designed to withhold life sustaining artificial means to keep you alive. A Last Will is for your assets and funeral and who gets what. If you are a foreigner in Thailand a Will is a must have. Its not expensive and makes sure that your wishes are carried out to the fullest.
