29 years seperated from thai woman

Recommended Posts

hi every body,

i got married to a thai woman , 29 years ago. ...And i am sure we went through the british embassy in bangkok and probably through the thai local official office for her paperwork...i did have a certificate in thai from them of the marrage , which i now lost ...But we lasted 1 year, and i left her and went back to the uk....   .After 1 year i got a letter from her new boyfriend in france with a phone number to get in contact to sign a divorce paper...i called but no answer !! .....so i left it at that..... So anyway in words we have been seperated and have had no contact in the 29 years....   Can anyone tell me where i stand on this now , if possible ....    i remember reading up on this a few years ago on a  uk.org website page , but its trying to find it again now , .... but what it said was as i can remember this part .....that after 18 years of separation the marrage would or could  be automatic annulled , because of the seperation time....Does anybody have any ideas on this ?    .......  Thank you for your time , Rod

Hi Rod,

 

good news and bad news.....good news, yes it's a straightforward divorce because you have been separated for more than three years......bad news, you still have to use a lawyer and go through the court in order to do it.

Your Ex might have divorced you already long time ago for being separated for more than 2 years.

Check you status with an Amphoe (you write about 'probably' having married there) and if your Ex actually divorced you, take this result into your filing in UK courts.

Check with the local Amphur where you were married and have them so a search Your wife may have already divorced you without your notice

She may have listed abandonment as the reason and can easily get a divorce

maybe he is getting ready to die? Or at least prepare for that? If no divorce, wouldn't she still be first in line for the pickings?

Why do you now need to know?
Are you about to remarry?
 
This may not be good advice, but if it was me, and I wanted to remarry, I'd just do it.  Who would know...who would care, after 29 years.
 
If the issue was ever raised, I'd say I received notification, 15, 17, 20 years ago, that she'd divorced me. The letter has been lost.
 
Your reason/s may be quite different, I.e., you aren't remarrying, in which case my suggestion may be irrelevant.
 
 
 
 

Sounds like a plan , thank you

Forgive my ignorance,but i thought i read somewhere that if he has not supported her,financially,for over a year,he was automatically divorced.This could be proved by bank statements or such.She would have to prove that shr received money,even if it was through Western Union,etc.Please enlighten me,as i am not sure.
