    Post Marrying in Thailand with prenuptial agreement in UK...

    My Thai girlfriend and I plan to get married in Thailand in a couple of weeks. She has agreed that we should get a prenuptial agreement drawn up in order to protect my UK property. I'm aware of the limited impact a prenuptial agreement has in the UK but figure it's still worth doing. I have some questions with regard to prenuptial agreements, as listed below. Any help and advice would be great. Thanks

    - Can my Thai partner agree and sign a UK pre-nub from Thailand?

    - What does the solicitor for my partner need to do to agree the pre-nub?
    - Can her independent solicitor be based in Thailand?

    - How does a UK pre-nub become active when marrying in Thailand only?
    - Will my partner need a translator? She speaks and writes English to a decent level.
    - Is it worth also having a prenuptial agreement drawn up in Thailand?

    My main concern would be (if the worst was to happen) her claiming she didnt understand what she had signed. If you are determined to head down the pre nup route I would be thinking along the lines of getting a certified translation as well, otherwise, from what I have read, it would probably have even less validity than a normal pre nup.

    That's sensible advice. A translation is something I've considered having done. I don't understand what I need to do to make a pre-nub created in the UK active when I'm getting married in Thailand. Could anyone advise me on that process?

    I don't think prenups apply in the UK. Last I heard:

    Currently, pre-nuptial agreements are not legally binding in the UK. However, a judge is likely to take the contracts into account when overseeing a divorce case and uphold them. But for the agreement to be upheld, judges have to be sure certain checks were put into place.

    Indeed, my understanding is they are not legally binding, only considered. My question is; what is the official way to file/activate a prenuptial agreement drawn up in the UK, when getting married in Thailand?

    Could you not put the house in some sort of trust fund ?
