This week Probate was finished for a man that died in Chiang Mai. I flew up with the team a few months back and gave testimony in the court as the children did not want to come to Thailand to administer the estate.
The Judge was most accommodating and allowed the children ( the Beneficiaries ) to resign and then appoint me as the Executor.
There were several cases on the ticket that morning and Thai888 Law was number 7. However, the Judge bumped our case and so we were number 1.
There was very little to the estate and it was not complicated. However, the bank account could not be closed until we had a court order.
Thai888 put everything in place and arranged for the bank (after signing several forms) to post a check to my bank.
After this was cleared I arranged for my bank to pay the 3 Beneficiaries – again many forms as the money was leaving Thailand and under the money laundering act we need all sorts of clearances.
The money landed in the Beneficiaries accounts a few days later.
Hello, this is an interview with Barry Upton from the Pattaya Expats Club PEC.
After kelvin Bamfield CEO of Thai888 Law Company gave a 45 minute presentation on Wills Testaments and Probate Barry asked a few more questions.
Here is the interview. thai888 Law will testament thailand Pattaya 2017
A few highlights were that Kelvin said “just make a Will” you dont have to come and see us. But make sure you get it right and put everything together in a book.
Also that its not “Bad Luck” to not make a Will. Rather it is good luck as then you do not put the burden on others to do the Probate, as this demands a court appearance and is a lot of work for your friend or family.
Thai888 Law Company does all law issues in Thailand. However, Kelvin specialises in Probate cases as he is an English speaking Australian and people find him easy to talk to, especially if the person is outside of Thailand.
A grieving friend or relative finds great comfort in being able to ask questions and get answers in English. No disrespect to the Thai people as they do a great job once Thai888 Law sorts out the initial thai888 Law will testament thailand Pattaya 2017 inquiry.
I was absolutely distraught at the thought of having to deal with my fathers funeral in Thailand, And I only had one week to get things sorted as I had to return to UK and my work! I didn’t speak the language or know the law but Kelvin at thai888 law, was the most patient, kind and knowledgable person who speaks English as well as having the benefits of his working partner being Thai, proved to be the most effective team going. I cannot recommend their services highly enough. Carrie

My USA attorney strongly wanted me to get a Thai will. I found Kelvin to be easy to talk with….and quite professional. After several letters between the two attorneys we had a workable will. What I knew was that I knew I was in good hands….and enjoyed the experience!

Thai888’s legal advice is coherent and consistent. Kelvin and Jeab cut thru the confusions that happen in a multilingual environment. My husband and I are very satisfied with their work for us. Having documents in both Thai and English is most advisable when dealing with the courts here.

I was buying a condo in central Pattaya. I used Thai 888, Kelvin and Jeab were really helpful, They helped me with opening bank accounts, checked everything over and handled the transaction for me. They have a legit office over in Jomtien and I was supplied with all the documents including an English transaction. It was money well spent.
