Do I even need to get divorced?

You do have to register a thai marriage in your home country to make it legal,right?

When someone applies for wife visa then everything will be recorded in his own country system. Next time if he wants to get married again he better have some proof of divorce for his previous marriage in case if something comes up by those records. 

Marriage is “piece of cake”, but divorce is hell bitter, especially when one disagrees.

I am talking about getting married in Thailand but never take the wife to your home country and never officially register the marriage. I am 100% sure there are countries where you must translate the papers from the amphoe and take them back home and send them to the proper authority to make the marriage official in a legal sense.

I suppose there may be countries where that is true, but the USA is not one of them. As soon as you register it in Thailand it is also legal in the USA.

Australia (a long as the marriage was legal under Australian law) also and I suspect many, many other countries.

 

  • The Marriage Act 1961 sets out the reasons that would make an overseas marriage invalid in Australia. These reasons include: 1. at the time of the marriage one of the parties was validly married to another person 2. one of the parties was not of marriageable age in Australia 3. the parties are too closely related to marry. This means one is an ancestor of the other, a descendent of the other or they are brother or sister. 4. consent to the marriage by either of the parties was …

Is a Marriage in Thailand Recognized in the United States?

Once a Thai marriage is registered the question is: will the United States of America recognize the union. Put simply, yes. According to the website of the US Embassy Thailand, in cases involving marriages legalized in the Kingdom, “ the United States does recognize the validity of such a marriage.

I am a US citizen (married 2 Thais (after 2 farang marriages), divorced one Thai in the USA - and in Thailand)......... The USA recognizes a Thai (recorded) marriage and considers it the same as a marriage performed in the USA.....

There is a slim chance that a 'Thai lady' would know that and that it would ever become a problem in the future is the USA, IF the USA isn't already aware of the marriage and 

If this your first marriage and you have not recorded anything In the USA then there may never be a record of it and the USA, and it may never be a problem to future marriages......

It all depends if you can 'live a 'little' dangerously' or you want to be 100% safe......

I took a chance on my divorce with my 3rd wife (1st Thai wife) and never had a problem and that was 25 years ago..... Now I am married again to a Thai in the USA for 23 years....

PM (Personal Mail) me for more specific answers..............   KEN

No you don't. In NZ I was legally married even though she never came to NZ and I never registered the marriage here. However when we got divorced in LOS I just informed the pension department and they changed my pension to single. No doubt they check with the Thai government, IMO.

Firstly, cancel the US application. Secondly, contact her and tell her you are sorry that it didn’t work out, but you want to make things right for her in Thailand by officially divorcing. So she can move on with her life if she meets someone “better”. In other words sell it to her, make out your doing it for her. Get over there and get the divorce over with officially. Once you are shot of her party like a Rockstar ... celebrate a lucky escape.

Price of attorney vs. price of flights, time spent, etc. is probably about the same. 


Yes, but doing it remotely via an attorney eliminates the significant risk that, while celebrating his divorce in Thailand, he may meet and fall in love with another Thai woman.

This one, of course, will be different.
