I have been on a non O multi entry for almost 10 years now. My son will be 9 in April. Never had an issue getting a new one. However, I am tired of the 90 day border runs and the annual renewal, s

Hi KhunPer, Thank you for your message. We went once in the Amphor in a district of Chiang Mai. They refused to legimize the fatherhood as the kid is under 7 years age.

Hello,

I will legitimize the fatherhood in about 2 years. It needs my kid to be 7 years to do it. (I will not adopt my own kid) :)

I met the officers again.

The document provided by Lite Beer seemed to make them change their decision.

I will get the extension today.

Big Kiss for Lite Beer.

Thanks also to all guys

I will confirm that I get the extension in few hours.

You do not have to wait until you child is 7 year old to do the legitimization. That is the normal date that an Amphoe would do it. You can go through the family court and do it before they are 7 years old. It is not an adoption when going through the court.

Indeed, nevertheless, the officers in the Court tried to force me to use the service of a lawyer, Which I refuse as I cannot afford it for now.

We should be able to achieve that process by ourself at the court, but I heard that then they don't make it easy.

And now my kid's mother has no time much.

So I put off this thing to do.

Just go back to Savannakhet and get a new Non -O Multiple Entry. My neighbour is doing it for years, never a problem.

Savannakhet will not do a multiple entry non-o for being the parent of a Thai unless a person is the legal father of the child by way of legitimization.

Thank you Paz.

At the immigration office in Chiang Mai, they asked me to legitimize the fatherhood, and have 400,000 on a bank account. I cannot legitimate the fatherhood now. My son is under 7 years old, and to do it at the court is a big mess (business). Also, I can't show 400,000.

That is when you apply for cause 2.19 - 1 year extension. But for reason 2.24 - 60 days extensions no money needs to be in the bank and no legitimization is needed. Just write "60 days" for reason "visiting family" on the form.

You should really legitimize your parenthood. it's not difficult as you think it is. No need to show any money to legitimize.

Kensington,
If you are on good foot with mum, you can legalize father ship at the Amphor (certificate Khor.Ror 11). Very easy and done in “one stop”; you need mum and ID, child and birth certificate (and ID, if child has one, or other photo ID from for example kindergarten or school), and yourself and passport – normally the registrar at the Amphor’s one-stop-office supply 2 witness from staff, but you can check in advance if you need to bring witness yourself. Think there was a minimal fee; I did that procedure myself last year.

Hi KhunPer,

Thank you for your message.

That is normal procedure, although the law doesn't give an actual age. Age 7 is the common rule. When the child goes to elementary school you could try it with a letter from the headmaster confirming you are the father. It sometimes works, but not sure.

What's the procedure if you want to adopt an 18yo 'whirlwind child' (father not known) ?

Maybe post in the family forum? As the question is largely off-topic here.
