Get an attorney.  Ask him/her what to do to protect yourself, your assets and your sanity.

 

Any advice you get here has a high probability of being wrong/ making things worse.

 

Probably the best free advice you will ever get here!

Not really as they don't have any 'attorney' in the UK.

I presumed the word 'attorney' can be used to cover the whole gamut of legal advice services.  Lawyer, solicitor, etc.  UK does have things that can be equated to an Attorney in legal services provided?

You're assuming there's wiggle room in divorce settlements, which there may be in the USA, but usually aren't in the UK.

The judge has firm instructions on how to divide, and isn't allowed to depart from those rules.

No fault divorce.

I'm actually assuming nothing.  I responded positively to the advice that he should seek proper legal advice on his predicament rather than use any of the varied and subjective advice on here.  The advisors in UK should be able to tell him exactly where he stands in terms of divorce settlements etc.

You appear to be assuming I'm from USA and have no experience of UK or similar legal systems, which couldn't be further from the truth.  

Your final statement says 'no fault divorce' which, from the poster's assertions, can possibly be proved to be due to spousal abuse.

I would find a lawyer and file a complaint with the police for all the reasons you detail herein. This is abuse if what you say is true? You should also keep a day to day diary to go along with any audio or video evidence of her mental or physical abuse. Then <deleted>(k up the visa renewal and wave goodbye.

No fault divorce = the behaviour of either party (good or bad) will not affect the division of assets.

You clearly have no understanding of UK 'no fault divorce' law, or you wouldn't have typed what you just did.

I'm afraid I can't agree with your interpretation based upon the above captioned legal advice.

Get a decent lawyer immediately, and in Thailand she is can only lay claim on 50% of anything you acquired AFTER you got married. I am assuming you are in U.K. now, and if I were you I would go to the police yourself and put on record that she has made these threats ! Get out of this ridiculous situation right now, and do not think for one second that she has any feelings or respect for you. Get out !

We got married in Thailand end of 2015

Am confused (as per usual) Everyone talking about getting a divorce or lawyer in the UK. 

Would you not only need to get a Thai lawyer and get a divorce in Thailand?   

Regards, S
