Criminal, Civil, Consumer, Funeral Director, Probate, repatriation of body or assets, Family Law
Thailand has no jury system and so the Judge relies on facts in the form of documents and testimony.
Criminal, Civil, Consumer, Family Law hearings are held in the Thai language. Therefore, an interpreter is necessary. Thai888 Law has experienced interpreters should you find yourself in Court.
Thai Law is layered and so you may find yourself charged with something that you may not have thought was related to your case. Example: you may be renting to someone that has stopped paying rent. They are in breach of the contract. Therefore, this becomes a civil matter in trying to get your money back. However, you decide that you will just change the locks after you remove all of the tenant’s possessions out. Your actions are criminal and you may find yourself in trouble with the Law and your penalty will be far worse than losing some rent.

Living Will for hospitals in Thailand
Within the Civil and Commercial Code
of Thailand, there is a provision to make a perfectly legal Living Will.
Basically, should you be in an accident or have a terminal disease, a signed Living Will is stating your right to not be resuscitated, kept on a ventilator, put into a drug induced coma, kept alive by artificial means, etc.
Your wishes are entered into this document that you, the Surrogate and 2 witnesses sign. A copy can be given to your hospital. You will need to name a Surrogate and they need to sign your Living Will. Should the need ever arise the Surrogate needs to meet with the Hospital Administration and instruct them to remove all artificial life-saving devices, make you comfortable and only give you pain lowering drugs.
This is your right under the CC Code of Thailand.
