Lawyer for a simple will

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a lawyer who can make a Will, it only involves transferring what's in my Thai account into the wife's account.

 

Area Phu Wiang / Khon Kaen.

 

Thanks

Good to get these type of things taken care of. USA if account holder passes away and notice of death submitted by Embassy or?

 

Account will be locked down immediately at time of notice. No one can aces etc. unless a will states so if not stated then court will 

decide who gets what. 

 

My father passed away and had a will but house and monies distribution wasn’t clear and was decided by a judge. 

 

It was was his second marriage with five children one deceased. 

 

Jusge decided his wife gets all monies. Children get house. Four surviving children get their share and deceased child his children he has three get 1/5th which the three divide 1/5. Decided best to 

sell home, His wife moved to another state where her brother lives and he bought her a house.

Can you please check your PMs (private messages).

 

After you log-in to ThaiVisa go to the top right hand corner of your screen, you will see a small green bell and to the right a small green envelope. 

 

Please click on the small green envelope to see a private message that I sent you.

My wife inquired at  the amphur the said only do it for Thai people.

 

Phoned Kasikorn bank - they can do it after you fill in a form that they will send you.

 

Need this done  before Monday.

 

I have a Thai friend who lost her farrang husband a few years ago. He had made no provision about money in his Thai account. She had a friend who went in front the Judge and got the money released.

 

This man works for the Amphur and does Lawyering as an extra curricula.

 

He uses a standard form, fills in relevant details signed by 2 witnesses and that's it.

He charged 1000 baht.

He lives Phu Wiang - not sure if I can post details here PM me if anyone wants details.

You don't need a lawyer for this, just open a joint account.

Maybe no good for you and your Mrs, but it would be a good solution for Bank and his under the circumstances. Or, Bank, just tell her your PIN or log on details.

Does it need to be on an official form. Just write down your wishes, say you are fully compus mentus and not being forced to do it. Get two people to witness that you signed it, and that they confirm your mental state etc, it should be OK.

You can do it like that in UK as well if you need to. I have. Then give or email copies to whoever you trust.

If you don't trust your wife, DON'T make a will, as you might get bumped off. This happened to a good friend of mine near Khon Kaen a few years back.

Set up a future transfer to your Mrs account the day you go for your op. And set one up for her account to put it all back when you get back.

Standard procedure is for the bank to be notified of the death then all accounts are frozen... 

So if she’s quick she could get some cash.
