I got a call last week from a family in the UK and was asked if we can arrange all documents funeral and cremation.
Thai888 Law arranged the Embassy release letter, release from the hospital, temple, staff, flowers. drinks etc.
All within a few days as the family had to fly out again.
Of course all this was done with the help of the family, girl friends, wives and friends.
One of the brothers made a special thank you over the mic to Thai888 about the seamless way in which we made everything come together. The family flew in made a few calls and we did the rest.
This is the way it should be. Efficient!
Sorry we dont advertise on the radio to get clients or to break into an already established market. We do things and then rely on word of mouth so that new customers can make their decisions based on our previous clients.
The Thai888 Law experience shows that our system works and this leave you and family to get on with the grieving process.
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.

An interesting case Thai888 Law civil case against an individual in Ubon Ratchathani in the North East of Thailand.
The case involved the use of a Chanote (Land Title Deed) to secure a loan.
To cut a long story short the monthly payments stopped after a short time and then the Chanote was returned.
However the Chanot was forged.
So there are 2 issues here:
to get the money back an application was made to the Civil Court in Ubon as thats where the event took place
the forgery becomes a criminal matter and was referred to the Criminal Court, again in Ubon
The civil matter was listed and has been been running now for 2 years and the Chanote was finally given to the lender of the money. However, when presented to the Land Office in Ubon, the issue was treated as if the Chanote was lost and so many documents were submitted to get the correct lenders name on the Chanote. This will take 6-8 weeks before the name on the Chanote is changed and then sold.
At least 8 trips were made and so be prepared for a long fight:
costs were for a lawyer to attend court
flights to Ubon
So far only a few hearings at the Criminal Court and this means another 4-6 trips to Ubon to sort this out.
Legal issues can be resolved in your favour as long as you have all the docs things should go your way.
However be prepared for a long costly battle but when you get back whats rightfully yours then its a big win.
