1.       You will need a copy of your marriage certificate. If you got married in Thailand then it is best of obtain copies or the originals of both certificates. The standard marriage certificate as well as the multipage marriage certificate. The attorney can make certified copies of these are their offices for you if you bring in the originals;

2.       Your prenuptial agreement as well as proof that the prenuptial agreement was registered with the Amphurs offices in Thailand. Again the original would be good to have as copies can be made. If you got married overseas in your own home country then the marriage certificate and prenuptial agreement from abroad would be needed;

3.       Your passport;

4.       If you are not going to litigate and wish to settle the matter by way of a divorce agreement then you will need to make a list of assets and liabilities and all the documents as listed here. Your Thai wife would normally seek legal help as well so take this into account as it is still much easier and cost effective than litigation;

5.       If this is an unopposed divorce or no fault divorce as Americans call it then your Thai wife’s Tabien Baan (House Papers) and Thai national ID card would also be needed;

6.       Your children’s birth certificates as well as school report cards would also be needed;

7.       If you are renting as a family then the rental agreement should also be taken with. If not then a copy of your title deed to the house, villa or condominium unit would also speed along things much faster if this is an unopposed or no fault divorce in Thailand;

8.       If you have a superficies registered or a usufruct then these would also be needed.

These are normally all the documents you will need. If it is an unopposed divorce then the process is simple however litigated divorces will cost both time and money.
