I’m not sure about Thailand, but if you have a legal marriage in the UK your assets are very much up for grabs, and that would be my focus, as Thai law has no jurisdiction in the UK. Good luck.

Yes the lawyer said she could try do a divorce over here but she cant get legal aid and it would cost much more money than she as in her purse and the lawyer told me if i tell immigration we are not together her visa is void and she as to leave the UK and she cant take the our daughter with out me agreeing.

 

I want to no what she can try get from me in Thailand

Sounds like you are worried about the money.

I thought that was a Thai thing.

 

Anyway, what about your kid? Child support, etc.

Or, you going to abandon support?

(a) develop a bit of empathy

(b) try to help with the drinking problem

(c) ask yourself, if, possibly, the drinking problem is connected to your behaviour or your presumably joint decision to live in UK

(d) develop a bit of empathy

(e) consider putting the well-being of the child before your assets 

(f) ask yourself how you would feel in wife's situation ... the picture you paint is not pretty from her point of view ("send her home"??? wow!)

(g) develop a bit of empathy

(h) don't be a Cheap Charlie (Cheap Charles in UK i suppose) ... you have assets and a UK lawyer but you are seeking free advice on a free website ... at the same time that you are effectively gloating that your wife will not have the resources to pay for any legal advice

(i) develop a bit of empathy 

 

... it's a long list but take it easy, break it down, maybe start on (a), (d), (g) and (i)

 

... better still, skip (i) you've got that nailed already.

 

Privately though ... and i write as a low-asset sort of 67 yo male who lost 50% of his assets to GFC and then 50% of the remainder to a very toxic ex-wife ... so really i should feel some empathy with you) ... one outcome may be ... 

she finds some help with her problem

re-establishes a healthy connection with her daughter (usually hers because she did most of the work creating her)

takes you to the cleaners an

meets another guy with ... more empathy.

 

Good luck and be sure to keep your free legal team here in TV posted.

If you don’t have assets in Thailand then the answer is nothing. Her only option is to go for UK assets, and as you have said she neither has the means or the knowledge to do that. 
 

Do you have assets in Thailand?

It sounds as though the wife does have a visa to remain in the UK and is on holiday there yet the child has a UK passport?

 

Also, when you say you're married does that mean you were legally married at an Amphur in Thailand or something else?

 

If those things are true:

 

You could divorce the wife under UK law but then there's the issue of custody which would be complex I reckon, either way you would loose up to 50% of your UK assets and possible child support as well, assuming you don't get custody.

 

Your wife could divorce you under UK law and the same would apply, custody and maintenance would be big issues, she only needs a tourist visa to get to the UK to begin that process or perhaps it could be done remotely, I don't know.

 

Thai divorce laws are not dissimilar to UK divorce laws, assets are split 50/50 and maintenance is required for young children.

 

Don't think for one second that you can ship her back to Thailand, divorce her in the UK and that will be the end of the matter because she has plenty of options.
