    Default Register my divorce in Thailand?

    Hello!
    I was married with a thai lady and not for a long time ago we got divorced.
    I want to know if my divorce (pronounced in UK) need to be registered in Thailand.
    In the next future I want to mary with a thai lady and I don`t want any problems.
    This can be done at Thai Embassy in London?
    Any answer will be highly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    If your marriage took place in the UK you have no need to register the divorce in Thailand - even if that was possible.

    If you intend your future marriage to take place in Thailand you will be required to swear an affidavit at the British Embassy, Bangkok (whilst we still have one) which is known as an Affirmation of Freedom to Marry. The embassy will want to see your divorce certificate before producing the Affirmation and you cannot marry in Thailand without it.

    Hi Flip, Thank you very much for your quick reply.
    I got married in Thailand and divorced in UK.
    This means that I have to register my divorce in Thailand?
    Can I do that at Thai Embassy in London?
    If yes, you know what documents are required?
    Thanks.

    Hmmm, sorry I don't know on that score then. I'm guessing but perhaps the Thai embassy will want to see your divorce certificate and the settlement and then may register your divorce. Obviously, the Thai Embassy is the best place to get such advice unless anyone else here has done this.

    I see where you're coming from as in Thailand you will still be registered as married. For peace of mind I would always suggest that if you are married in Thailand, you get divorced in Thailand.

    Probably I’ll ask at embassy. I’d like to clear everything before marriage. But I’m still waiting for suggestions on this forum from someone else with similar experience. Thanks again.

    I received an answer from Thai Embassy : "You can get the document to be certified by FCO and the Thai embassy you also need to get it translated into Thai first."
    What shall I understand from that? That is mandatory to register my divorce in Thailand or Thai Embassy?

    What Flip is saying :
    If you got married in Thailand, and I believe you did. Then it would of been cheaper and easier to get a divorce back in Thailand.
    Although you decided to get a divorce in the UK. The solicitors fees would of been expensive and I believe you may have to visit the ampure in Thailand to register your divorce.

    Thanks, Te2008 for your answer.
    Just received another response from Embassy.
    You are right, I have to register my divorce in Thailand (local registrar office, when remarrying).
    At Embassy I need to legalize my divorce documents (Thai translation).
    Let's see how is going.
    Now I'm waiting for my Decree Absolute.
    Thanks again.
    Regards.
