Do you need legal services in bangkok?
If you require the services of Bangkok Lawyers or Solicitors for business registration, immigration or divorce, Bangkok is the location of the head offices of the Ministry of Commerce, Department of Justice, Land Office and most other administration of justice and commerce offices in Thailand.
In Thailand the provincial offices are only branches of the main office in Thailand. This is why having an attorney in Bangkok with multiple branches makes sense. As an example if you wish to register a property in Phuket, the documents still have to come to the Land Office in Bangkok.

The uncontested divorce in Thailand is a consensual divorce or an administrative divorce registration at a government office. If you and your spouse previously registered your marriage at a local district office in Thailand, you may register for uncontested Thailand divorce. An uncontested divorce at the local district office is a divorce registration process and no judge or court is involved. Normally this divorce registration process requires that you and your spouse have no disagreements over child custody or property. If one or both spouse does not agree to the terms of the divorce, the divorce is referred to as a contested divorce. Contested divorces are handled in the Thai Courts rather than through an administrative procedure at the District Office. Rather than a divorce registration, a court orders a divorce agreement.
