No grey area, read the law.

Tell her she can have the divorce on the expiry date of your visa/extension of stay. No need to hurry. If she wants out so fast will she compensate you for your trouble? This then gives you plenty of

Your extension of stay (you don't have a visa) will end on your day that you divorce. You will be on overstay then. Change your way of stay BEFORE you divorce.

will immigration know i got divorce from the amphue we divorced?

 

Last year I was on a non-imm O with expiry day of April 2020. I got divorced Oct 2019. Did a couple of border runs and nothing was said at border immigration. 

 

When visa expired I was then on the amnesty extension until September and then applied for 60 day extension on grounds of visiting daughter. Nothing was said at immigration even though I re-married in August 2020.

 

Immigration will only know about your divorce if you tell them. If you do tell them then you have to leave immediately.

thnx this is what i needed to know. So as i thought just stay away from immigration door will do the magic.

 

Yes, but unless like this poster, you get remarried, then you'll have to find a new reason to justify your extension.

 

As you use an agency already, check with them.

 

Also, seems you and your wife, about to be ex, are on reasonably good terms. Why the rush to divorce? Can't see that benefits anyone unless you/she has someone else. If that's not the case, why not stay married till nearer your extension time? Just a thought.

like i said in the main post, because of her position in the government. They need to report themselves (everything about themselves) every year. and its the end of this month. Otherwise she was ok till next july.

Better to change your visa to NON-B.  Ask your agent, if he is good he knows how to do it. It is possible for some "fee".

Staying here after divorce with this stamp is illegal.  You got your visa based on marriage,  when marriage ends, visa follows. 

Immigration will never know, if nobody inform them. But there is some small risk to have much bigger problems than switching your visa to NON-B.

i think changing my non-o to non-b can be done by only agent. because i never heard of in normal ways. then what can happen when im doing my work permit or else? so thats a higher risk. Im still with plan A: wait till july or any suitable time before that. leave and get a new non-b and come back

thnx

thnx

I got caught out many years ago, was working on my marriage visa extensions for several years. Got divorced, got found out when I applied to change to non B. Was told I should have left the country within 24 hours of divorce. Luckily I had a good relationship with immi and they just fined me the 20k and made a note on my overstay stamp that it was just an oversight.

It is not OK.

A divorce works in the same way as your employment termination on a B extension. They give 7 days.

If you are working safer to have a B ,(It used to be law)

Are you paying tax ?

I would sort it out ASAP 

You may have to leave the country & return (a major hassle at present) so why the urgency to

cut the chord ?

PS: because of her very high position in Thai government she wants to divorce like coming Monday. Because she must report her status and everything at the end of this month.

 

She is being amenable ie not making life hard for him, why rock the boat?
