Thailand backs laws approving medical cannabis and same-sex unions

Thailand’s outgoing military government has approved bills legalising medical marijuana and same-sex civil unions, putting the south-east Asian country ahead of most of its neighbours in legal reforms on both fronts before a February election.

International Prenuptial Agreements



International Prenuptial Agreements

When more than one country is involved

In many circumstances, prenuptial agreements have international implications. The following are examples of such situations:

• The prospective husband is a foreigner and the wife is from Thailand. Or any situation where the future wife and husband do not hold the same nationalty;
• They plan to marry and live in different jurisdictions;
• One or both future spouses have assets in more than one country.

In such cases, it is highly recommended to hire devoted attorneys that are familiar with the laws of your home country. In fact, they will have to consider the law of all jurisdictions in order to make the best agreement for you.

International Prenuptial Agreement

International agreements come with insecurity


Drafting a prenuptial agreement that is enforceable in all countries involved is highly complex because of differences in the respective laws of each country. This is commonly called "conflict of laws", when the laws of one country are not compatible with the laws of another. In such cases, a contract drafted by an inexperienced lawyer may be considered void by the Court, which could be devastating for the spouses’ respective interests. This is why studying and understanding the laws of each country is essential for protecting the intentions of future spouses.

There is only one International Treaty that addresses prenuptial agreements. "The Hague Convention on the Law Applicable to Matrimonial Property Regimes" specifically authorizes prenuptial agreements, which only a few countries have ratified. Thailand has not, and instead has adopted the Conflict of Laws Act.

Get in touch with Isaan Lawyers, if you plan to enter into an international prenuptial agreement.

What are the rules for where you are from?

Australia
Prenuptial agreements are called “financial agreements” in Australia. They first became valid and enforceable in 2000. However, they are subject to many limitations, including the requirement that future spouses obtain independant legal advice from an Australian legal practitionner. Without this condition, the Family Court will not be bound by the financial agreement.

Canada
Family laws in Canada differ depending on which province you come from, as do the requirements for a prenuptial agreement to be enforceable. In Alberta, both parties must obtain independant legal advice, and a certificate in regards to this fact must be attached to the contract. In Quebec, a prenuptial agreement must be signed before a notary.

France
A prenuptial agreement drafted in Thailand in accordance with any requirements of Thai law will be enforceable and valid in France, if one of the spouses (1) is a Thai national; (2) was living in Thailand before marriage; (3) will be living in Thailand after the marriage takes place; or (4) regarding real estate, the property is located in Thailand.

Germany
Germany does not recognize the law of foreign countries, even if it is the intention of the parties according to the agreement. A prenuptial agreement must have been executed before a notary. Also, the contract shall not disadvantage one party over the other, as it may be considered void by the court.

United Kingdom
Until very recently, the United Kingdom systematicly refused to enforce any prenuptial agreement. We had to wait until 2010 to see the Supreme Court, in Radmacher case law, opening the door to the enforcement of such contracts. The UK also refuses to apply the chosen jurisdiction of the parties.

United States
Prenuptial agreements are valid and enforceable throughout the country, but the requirements are based on the state where the contract is registered as each state has their own prenuptial laws. Moreover, some courts refuse to apply the laws of foreign countries, even if there is a jurisdiction clause in the contract.

Isaan Lawyers has worked with legal representatives from many different jurisdictions and drafted numerous legal agreements and contracts that are valid in Australia, Canada, France, Belgium, United Kingdom, Germany, and United States.

testimonial 1 Andre D., Belgium (Nakhon Ratchasima – 2015)
Many thanks to Sebastian and his team from Isaan Lawyers for the excellent service I received from them. Having run the gauntLet of "reputable" lawyers in Thailand and their services (...) I finally got results (against all the odds) and won my case in spite of not being able to be present in Court for the appropriate date. I was charged an extremely low fee in comparison to what I gained, and indeed: in comparison to what I had already paid in advance to the non to the non performing but ever-promising Thai legal law firm I had previously approached for help.

testimonial 1 David S., South Africa (case in Buriram)
We were there approximately two hours. They asked us for an extra copy each of my passport and her tabien bahn, which we had.

testimonial 1 L., Singapore (October 2014)
I was recommended Isaan Lawyers through a fellow countryman who is also a client. My wife and I live in Phuket, where everything is overpriced like there is no tomorrow and with the recommendation from my friend, I wanted to give a law firm from "out of town" a try. I was a little bit hesitant at first, but after dealing with Sebastian and his team, all of that is gone. The support and prep-work beforehand was excellent in everyway and for the first time since long, I have the feeling of not beeing ripped off. I am truly grateful for the services provided and I will return with any future needs I might have. I now consider Isaan Lawyers to be "my lawyer in Thailand" and I feel comfortable of recommending them to anyone.
