Thai Prenuptial Agreement

Prenuptial Agreements or “Prenup/Prenupt” as is it commonly called have become very common in this day and age. The Prenup or Prenuptial Agreement is an agreement between two people who agree that in the event of a divorce or sequestration that certain property will remain the sole property of one person. The Prenup agreement even though not compulsory creates a certain level of financial security when partners decide to get married. With the prenuptial agreement in place it limits the costs of a divorce where parties may not agree on which assets each are entitled too, but in the event that one party is sequestrated of black listed with a credit bureau the other is assured of his or her assets and credit rankings. These of course vary from country to country so it is always best to speak to an attorney about a prenuptial agreement before getting married.

Property ownership in Thailand for a couple falls into two categories. Separate property owned by the husband or wife. These would include personal items, tools, gifts, the engagement ring and inheritance acquired after marriage amongst others.

The other category of property in Thailand is that of communal property which property jointly owned by husband and wife and includes property acquired during marriage (other than by inheritance or as gifts) Prenuptial Agreementamongst others. The Prenup or prenuptial agreement is important because should there be any doubt as to the category of property it would automatically become jointly owned property.

Getting divorce may be the last thought on your mind; however it is always best to obtain the services of an attorney to draft your Thai Prenup or Thai prenuptial agreement before you get married and way before you register your marriage in Thailand .
