Getting divorced can be easy or complicated. If both parties agree then it can be very easy as both you and your wife simply have to go back to the Amphurs Office where you got married and file for a divorce. Forms need to be completed and the procedure is rather simple. Child custody and any other financial agreements can be drafted and signed at the offices as it is a straight forward administrative divorce.

If one party does not agree then the matter has to be placed onto the court roll for hearing. This is where is can become expensive and time-consuming as the wheels of justice in Thailand rolls very slow. There are a number of reasons to file for a divorce however the most common would be adultery, or the husband has not lived with the wife for more than a year. Both parties need to be present in both an administrative divorce or one held in court.

How would the access to the children work and also what financial arrangements would be made.
