A divorce agreement under Thai law is a contract between two spouses who are getting divorced. It sets out the terms of their divorce, including the division of assets, child custody, and spousal support. Both parties must consent to all terms to register a divorce by mutual consent.
ThaiLawOnline can draft you a divorce agreement in Thai and English so that both parties can understand. It should be registered (or filled) with the amphur (or Khet in Bangkok) in the district where the marriage was registered. A divorce is very important and we do not recommend anyone to use a template. Our services are not expensive. You will receive professional advice and a guarantee to have a binding document tailored to your situation.

Things to include in a divorce agreement based on Thai law
The divorce agreement should include the following information:
- The names of the spouses
- The date of the marriage
- The date of the divorce
- The division of marital assets, such as the house, car, bank accounts, and other property.
- The amount of child support that will be paid by one spouse to the other.
- The arrangements for child custody, such as who will have primary custody and how often the other spouse will be allowed to visit.
- The amount of spousal support that will be paid by one spouse to the other. Spousal support is typically paid for a limited period of time, such as one year or three years but it is not automatic under Thai law. It could also be agreed not to give any spousal support.
- Any other terms that the spouses agree on, such as the payment of debts or the division of pensions.
The divorce agreement should be fair and equitable to both spouses. We have a lot of experience and our documents are drafted by registered lawyers who are familiar with Thai law.
It is important to note that the terms of a divorce agreement can be changed later on, if both spouses agree. However, it is always best to try to reach an agreement that is fair and equitable to both parties, so that there is less chance of conflict in the future.
If you are considering getting a divorce in Thailand, it is important to consult with a law firm familiar with Thai family law. ThaiLawOnline have been helping expats since 2006. We can help you draft a legal document that meets your needs and protects your interests.
