Thai888 Law domain up and running

Monday saw all of our mail systems thai888.com down. We could receive emails but could not send as for an unknown reason. I called our domain hosting service Godaddy in Singapore. This did not help. It became its not our problem but they did try to help.

Email issues

The second call was to TOT Thailand and some techs came out on Tuesday. A few hours later they showed me a screenshot of the Singapore server rejecting thai888.com emails.

Godaddy or TOT

Call back to Godaddy in the USA, where nearly an hour later I was getting angry as no sleep for a day and no email for 2 days.

Again Godaddy rejected that it could be their Singapore servers, although I had the screenshot of the servers rejecting thai888.com mail!

So we have Singapore, Thailand, USA and me being an Australian trying to solve the blame game with me in the middle saying I have to run a company and staff and clients emails aren’t getting through.

In the end, it was not a Godaddy issue according to them nor TOT issue and so.

In the end, I did something very radical. I moved (migrated) our thai888.com domain and all things to the USA.

6 hours later I got a messaging saying migration was completed. Then I reconfigured all the mail and certificates for SSL to show USA domain hosting.

Abroad Funeral Services Company Pattaya Thailand

Once things settle down I plan to make Abroad Funeral Thailand Website.

Don’t forget that Abroad Funeral Thailand is designed to take the worry and hassle from learning that a friend or family member has passed away in Thailand. What to do? where to start, who to call first? +66 8 0102 8978 do they speak English? Don’t waste time and just call us.

All is well now and so my apologies for any inconvenience –

My IT background saves the day

BTW my prior life I was the IT manager of Central Queensland University in Sydney NSW Australia and with this knowledge, I was able to fix this international issue. And so I hope something like this doesn’t happen to you as without technical knowledge it would be hard to diagnose the problem.

2 day problem with thai888.com email, now sorted.

Alzheimer’s or just getting old Thai888 Law Funeral

I tend to forget sometimes that I am dealing with real living people and their emotions and bodies. Making a Will or enforcing a Living Will after doing it hundreds of times makes it sometimes impersonal and robot-like. After all, it is a legal document. But for some they want their legacy to live on through a charity or helping their Thai partner, their family or sometimes even the gardener or the cook.

When a Will is made it normally stats that the person making it is of sound mind. However, my experience lately is that some of my clients have or are developing Alziemers. These people are elderly and living alone.

Alzheimer’s is a dreadful decease and most debilitating. And the worst is that each day it shows and the person forgets many things, even why they are in my office.

The disease gets to a point where the person needs 24-hour care. Care that is not really available in Thailand and so the person takes whatever assistance they can get. Someone to just be there in case.

The carer may mean well but they have no experience in looking after someone with Alzheimer’s. None.

I am not saying this of all carers but one client has an awful lot of money missing from their account. The carer was given the PIN number and access as sometimes the client cannot get out of bed and needs supplies. Each day several withdrawals have been made.

A lot of trust is needed here. It’s not easy and what else can one do in this situation?

If you know someone in this position then get them to make a Will whilst they are still competent.

Also, try to make them understand that someone needs to look after their accounts, someone trustworthy.

If the person has a large estate or more than 2 bank accounts, get them to start reducing all things down to a manageable size. 2 bank books – 1 fixed interest and the other day to day should be enough. And don’t forget the 800K in the bank for Immigration. And to go every 90 days and to apply for your visa every 12 months.

Not easy when you can’t remember much at all.

I did not ever expect this to be part of my job. However, I can help in a few ways. I am the controller of property for may clients, meaning that should something happen I can control the asset if it is for a person under 20 years old.

I can help if you have a Living Will or the Last Will and I am the Executor.

I cannot help if you have nothing in place and no next of kin.

Therefore I ask you to make a Will and make sure that a trusted 3rd party has your access codes and PIN numbers – and I don’t mean the gardener or the cook as the temptation is too great.

Please act on this before its too late. info@thai888.com

 Alzheimer and Your Last WIll Thai888 Law

Galloper, Funeral, Pattaya, Probate, Insurance, Thai888 Law

A tough time for all involved and particularly as Gordon Halpin AKA “Galloper” and his wife Judy were friend of over 8 years.

As friends, we assisted from the beginning at the hospital, with the insurance company from Australia, the Police, and used Thai888 Law to arrange the funeral, cremation, insurance claim, and Probate. It was a very big day and thanks to all our staff and friends for making it so.

Here is the funeral of a big day for big Mr G at 6 foot 6 inches tall.

Thai888 Law Company review

Our client wanted to post this however did not have a Google account and so they have allowed me to post it here.

Hello again Mr. Bamfield,
    It is my pleasure to hear from you again, and my honor to write a review for you. I am going to send you the review, in red, in this email, for you to look over.

So my question to you is: is there somebody in your Thai888 Law and Funeral Services Company / office that can post this review using their Google account? My review is truly heartfelt, and will come across as such, so I do not think that the user name would be an issue. I think any first name would be fine, without the need to use a last name. If that is a problem, I will get another SIM card and open the Google account. I want to do this and I will get it done, so please inform on this point.

Here is the review. I put much thought into this because I wanted the review to have an impact.

Thank you also for the Pattaya City expat club recommendation. I will urge Diane to attend it on Sunday (I am currently in Rayong, as Diane went to Pattaya for an art class).

REVIEW:
Attorneys, dentists, and mechanics : We all need them, but negative stereotypes and past experiences have led us to subconsciously to avoid them, until absolutely necessary. As overseas expats, this problem is compounded by both the language barrier and general unfamiliarity of being in a foreign country.

In the West, people hold their breath nervously, as each second that passes in consultation with a lawyer costs serious money (along with any follow-up correspondence from even low level people). The exact opposite is true here: I was quite surprised at how generous Kelvin was with his time, out of basic human kindness. In fact, Kelvin even contacted local authorities about a unique situation that I had, without even being asked to do so, at no cost to me. All costs were more than reasonable, and spelled out clearly. Other law offices that I had misfortune of dealing with wanted exorbitant fees for even the simplest of paperwork, simply because they could get away with it in a foreign land, and because they spoke English.

Of course, having the job done correctly is the primary concern, and I was impressed with his attention to detail. My gut feeling tells me that this will be done right. I also know that he is reachable and responsive at all times, should I need to contact him. Kelvin has been here for 19 years, so he knows the lay of the land quite well. Did I mention how genuinely warm, friendly, and human he was? Again, that is one of those gut feel issues that intuitive people latch onto.

I never thought that I would be honored to write an upbeat appraisal for someone doing this Probate work, but here we are. Now if I could only find an honest dentist…?

Google Business Thai888 Monkhouse website

A unique combined law company and funeral director services. Sounds weird however if you have ever had to deal with someone passing away and the legal issues associated with it then you will see the login in making 1 office manage all. 

Many times Thai888 Law get the midnight call and then we make a few calls and things start to happen. We keep the family fully informed of the process and what documents are needed.

Most of these calls are from relatives overseas. They explain that because of health issues, or family, or work, or costs that they cannot come to the funeral or look after things in Thailand. 

Thai888 Law and Monkhouse works with the family to arrange the funeral and then apply to the courts for Probate.

Its not easy for the family however thats why Thai888 and Allison Monkhouse combined to do the work for you – even though you cannot come to Thailand we do everything for you so that its like your here. We can arrange videos of the funeral and cremation or a live CHAT if you request. Or a sea ashes burial.

Please book mark our contact details or email now info@thai888.com

Funeral for foreigner in Thailand

Yes, Thai888 Law has 2 offices and one is for Wills, funerals and probate – and everything in between.

Now we can offer a whole range of options and prices – also sea burials.

Thai888 do not do pre planned payments for your future plans as there is no trust or Escrow in Thailand to hold this money. So consider this carefully.

The way Thai888 structures a Will guarantees that there is money for your future plans. 

So plan carefully and see us for any questions you may have and this will ensure there is no mess left for your family or friends.

Also Thai888 Law and funeral has several years more International Probate experience than other companies – something to consider as this will save money and time.

Living Will by Thai888 Law what is it and how to make one

A Living Will under Thai Law is part of Thai Law under Statute 12 of the CCC. Basically it gives you the opportunity when you are competent enough to make some advanced planning. 

Featured image

There are 2 condition where it can work. 1 is where you are in a terminal phase of illness and the 2nd is where you are brain dead through injury caused by an accident, stroke, or aneurysm.

Some call the Living Will and enduring Power of Attorney (USA) however it is specific to Thailand and so called a Living Will.

Our document is on the same page English and then Thai language. We do this as some of the hospitals have 2 separate documents and so one may be changed and we think if its one the same page then it cannot be changed and the Judge and or hospital can see what the Testator wished.

There are a series of boxes to request or deny treatment and the Testator should check them off.

There is whats called a Surrogate and this is either me or a friend that is strong enough to tell the hospital to carry our your wishes.

All is signed and witnessed by 2 people.

Basically you as the Testator are telling the hospital to deny treatment to keep you allow when there is no hope.

Pain killers to make you comfortable are what most people prefer.

If you want to talk about this or get more info then email or call.

I have one as I have no intent to stay on a machine with the meter ticking over. I would rather give the money to my heirs or a charity.
