It's a useless piece of paper, no?

I sent you a PM with some helpful information. My understanding is that in Thailand, she must review the document with an independent lawyer without you around. Good luck.

Thanks for the responses so far

 

Jyst to clarify, this is with a view to protecting assets in the UK

 

Im not proposing to have any assets in Thailand

As scoutman360 has said, she needs her own independent advice.

 

Also think about how you hold your assets in the UK, for example if there is a property it might be better to put it into a trust for further protection should the prenup not work out.

Uk doesn't recognise prenups.

Best not to get married.

Anything you owned before you got married is yours if you split up, keep everything in England, you have nothing to worry about 

I was told the same by a Thai lawyer. Although you both just have to list what you own before you marry. Thai divorce simply splits community assets (those gained during marriage) 50/50 and anything you owned before getting married is not included. I read on here once that there is a form at the Amphur you can fill in before getting married although I've never seen one.

I thought that should be the Thai way in marriage. However it would be wise then to put that on paper and have it signed by her and witnessed by lawyer.

You guys talk like you assume he is going to live in Thailand but what if he wants to take her back to UK? 

I think I read somewhere where you need to have a prenup translated to Thai and it needs to be reviewed/explained to her in private by her with her own a lawyer.

All your people who don't want to ever get married again should not even reply to a question like this.   and what kind of a stupid comment is ...here comes another one?

I say here comes a smart one.  you know most men have a desire to live with one woman and marriage works out good when you need to get a Visa.
