    Definately didn't mis-hear him.

    Song Mun Ha Phan baht.

    Two other thais also comfirmed it, 25000 baht.

    The lying bastard said that the rules had changed now and everything was different.

    No sinsot for either of you? Lucky bastards. My ex-gal said she didn't care about sinsot, although her parents might think otherwise. How did they react when you told them they wouldn't be getting anything? The dowry is one of the main reasons I am wary of marrying a Thai - I can't bloody afford it!

    If your a BAD farang, you have to prove that you are not married somewhere else in the world before you can pluck one of lifes little wonders from the LOS

    Sort of agree as I got married to a Thai/Chinese girl in '95, things OK until the family business went tits up in '97 due to her old mans insatiable GREED. After that it was all down hill, the family expected me to keep up the payments on everything. Fuck that so tossed her. Swore I would never get married again, but did. After two childen thought better get married to my little Udon Princess. I really don't give a toss what anyone says, Udon girls are hard to beat, of course it goes without saying, you have to pick well.
    So once we decided to get married, Had a divorce certificate issued in Australia, but I am not Australian so the OZ embassy said fluck off ! your not an Ozzie so we can't certify your Divorce. The NZ embassy said we can't as you were divorced in Aust. In the end we went to NZ and got married, where they were quite happy to recognise the Aust divorce.

    Thumbs down

    Is there any legal reason a statutory declaration has to come from the Embassy of your nationality, it would very convenient for the UK people to drop in to either the New Zealand or U.S. Embassy and do one in 10-15minutes instead of the call back next day 'service' provided by the UK Embassy, also costing considerably more than the afore going examples.

    Further comment is perhaps unnecessary!

    A note here on the U.S. process...

    Don't file an official marriage in Thailand and then attempt to obtain a marriage visa for the U.S. -- it's much more difficult than obtaining a fiancee visa.

    Have a traditional ceremony, then apply for a fiancee visa. Within 90 days of entry to the U.S., have a civil ceremony and then begin the arduous task of obtaining the permanent residency (green card) process.

    For anyone thinking of this, I can provide some advice from my stepson's experience. The fiancee visa was the easy part -- it's the green card that is proving difficult due to the documentation (and translation) requirements.

    I agree. Do not get a legal marriage in Thailand if the plan is to bring the wife back to the States. Do not register at the amphur and under no circumstances make it legal until you arrive in the U.S. (you have 90 days as noted to do this).And if you plan on bringing children back it's best to apply for the visa at the same time as the fiancee because the children can get derivative visas when the 'wife' is approved. Children get automatic U.S. citizenship upon arrival in the U.S and upon marriage of the parent to the U.S. citizen.

    Just a clarification on the visas for children...

    If the person applying for a fiancee visa is a Thai citizen but has children from a relationship with the U.S. citizen, those children are U.S. citizens and simply need a passport obtained from the U.S. Embassy. (Well, I say simply....translations of Thai documents will of course be required, and the U.S. citizen must swear to the parentage.)

    If the children are from a previous relationship of the Thai citizen, that's when you get into the dependency visa.

    Of course, if there are Thai children who haven't had their births registered, one could always allow the birth to be registered with the U.S. citizen as the parent (like my husband did with his Thai niece, when he was 12,500 miles away at the time of her conception.....Oh! Did I say that out loud?!).

    is this only for residents in thailand or would a visitor need to do this also?
