    Default Thai national Divorcing unwilling UK guy

    I Have a thai friend, she is married to UK guy. They are now separated, but he refuses to deal with a divorce. he lives UK, she lives BKK. She wants divorce. He is unwilling to cooperate, already has other women. The marriage was 3 years ago at Laksi District. It was notorised, she has documents. What are her options to be able to divorce this guy? Thank you.

    Hello, welcome to the forum.

    How long have they lived apart?

    Children involved?

    Hello. They have never lived together. he lives in UK. She lives BKK. He would only come over for a few weeks a year (i know it sounds nuts). No children.

    Married 3 years ago at Laksi District caller.

    Isn't there something where you can divorce without both parties being present if using the same amphur office?

    Blimey -I read that as Lake District! Thanks Gary!

    I would have thought explaining the circumstances to the amphur would be a good start.

    It's Thailand. There are always ways and means and even without that, two separate Amphurs might well give conflicting advice. The law is very open to interpretation by the various officials that have to apply it, tucked away in their own little fiefdoms.
