    Default Khon Kaen Englsih Speaking Lawyer

    Hi all

    I am looking for English speaking lawyer based in Khon Kaen to assist me with preparing a prenuptial agreement as I plan to marry in August.

    I am in Khon Kaen in two weeks time so I would like to get it all sorted whilst I am there.

    Can anyone recommend a good lawyer.

    Kind Regards

    Rob

    If you can't find one in Khon Kaen, try Isaan Lawyers in Nakhon Ratchasima. The MD is a French-Canadian who speaks fluent English.

    But can I ask you why feel you need a Pre-nup? As far as I know, under Thai law your wife is not entitled to any assets you hold prior to marriage. It is not compulsory but you can add strenght to this by listing your current assets on registration at the Amphur - that is one of the questions the registrar asks you although I doubt many are aware they were asked.

    Hi Flip

    Thanks for your reply - I have spoken to Issan Lawyers but they want to produce the document without meeting myself or my partner. I would like them to explain to my partner what a pre-nup is.

    I take your point about not needing a pre-nup but for me its piece of mind just in case it does not work out for us.

    Anyone I am in Bangkok for two days next week anyone know any good English speaking lawyers?

    Kind Regards
    Rob

    Just go on the website and book an appointment. They have both Thai and English speaking lawyers and will also do video appointments on Skype.

    Despite living in Khon Kaen for nearly 13 years, I've yet to use a lawyer here, so can't recommend one personally. I do know several people who have used Isaan Lawyers and given positive feedback.

    I also know of an English-speaking Thai lawyer in Khon Kaen city who has represented several farangs. I'll get his details from a Thai friend this evening and post the details tomorrow.
