How do I make a Will Thailand

Abroad Funerals Pattaya takes the worry and stress out

You need a Will Testament in Thailand.

As without one it can become a real issue for those left to arrange everything.

Making a Will is easy and not expensive. However for some reason more than half of people do not have one. It doesn’t matter how old you are or your health as things happen and unexpectedly too.

Most don’t understand the words I have used above let alone their how they work in a legal World.

Will Testament and the Law

Thai888 Law has designed a checklist for you so that you can understand who else is involved in your Will Testament. Of course there is you (Testator), what do you own (assets or estate (including your body), who you want to leave certain things to (Beneficiaries), who to contact (Next of Kin NOK) and who you want to manage everything after you die (Executor) as they need to take the matter to court (Probate).

Thai Language

Most documents are in Thai Language and most times these need to be translated. Sometimes, if documents need to be used in another country this needs to be done at a Consulate and then signed off by the Minister of Foreign Affairs. All Wills and the Executor must go to court to be given a court order (Grant of Probate) and with this document you can close bank accounts, sell/transfer land condo or house, transfer car or motorbike, send money overseas, collect insurance.

Free Will Checklist

This is just the beginning and helpful in knowing what documents and information you need to give us so we can write up your Will Testament for Thailand. Abroad Funerals and Thai888 Law offer your Will Testament in Thai and English and 2 copies with all of your information, possessions, family and friends contacts inside

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.

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…?
