Divorce in Thailand (http://www.siam-legal.com/legal_services/thailand-divorce.php):
Marriage outside of Thailand

If you were married outside of Thailand, you can only divorce according to the laws (http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts1996/ukpga_19960027_en_1) of the country concerned. It is possible to file for divorce in Thailand but only under certain circumstances involve the laws in your country of marriage, no conflict with the law in Thailand, your residency and the grounds (http://www.lawpack.co.uk/grounds_for_divorce.asp) for your divorce.
