    Remember the rule all women live by:

    Isle Alter Hymn


    The 3 rings:

    Engagement ring
    Wedding ring
    Suffer-ring

    Otherwise, enjoy your brief sojourn. Life is a journey - live it well.

    Given that it was written in February 2006, it's probably fair to say that some checking would be in order before proceeding...

    Yes, indeed.
    Amending your steps a bit, you described

    Step A. Get a Statutory declaration at your country's embassy

    Step B. Get it translated.

    Step C. Get it legalized. Go to Legalisation Dept., in Consular Affairs
    (also bring your passport etc, as described in post #1)

    Step D. Go to any Amphur and get marriage registration.

    Some advise against getting married in Thailand, if you wish the lady to travel to your home country (in that getting a gf visit permit is easier than getting a thai wedded lady an entry permit).
    In my case we are already married here in DK, and the desire for a Thai wedding is "just" to do also the proper registration in Thailand. So I guess my statutory declaration would be "we are married in DK", i.e. our DK marriage certificate (translated to Thai), and now we want to legalize it in Thailand.

    Second, would you know if the BKK Consular affairs office the only one in Thailand ? Is there one in Udon perhaps ?

    ^^ Couple of points.
    To have a Thai Wedding, you don't have to do anything legal wise, just have the ceremony. The legal and ceremonial parts of marriage are completely separate in Thailand.

    On the legal part, you are already married; you don't have to do anything more as the marriage is recognized by Thai law. You will have to go through some hoops if you ever have to prove to Thai authorities you are married like for instance to get a extension based on marriage.

    Thaihome, thanks a lot.
    It seems like the process (in 2009) is still like what Klongmaster described.

    I copy the content of your link below. It has interesting notes about sharing items obtained during marriage, if you end in divorce I guess.

    Thanks, I know the ceremonial wedding and legal Amphur registration is separate in Thailand. Not so here, if you say "yes" in church then it counts . But you know that too, of course.
    I guess next time we are in BKK we will do the legalization thing, just to get ready for an Amphur visit. It means something to her to get it "legalized" in Thailand too.

    FAMILY LAW IN THAILAND Part III: Proving a foreign marriage in Thailand

    • Published: 13/09/2009 at 12:00 AM
    • Newspaper section: Spectrum




    Last time we mentioned that there are reasons that you may need to prove to the Thai authorities that you are married. One reason is that for the purposes of death and divorce, one-half of the assets acquired during the marriage go to the spouse. We will expend much more ink on this issue later, but for now suffice it to say that to get half the marital assets (or for your spouse to get them) you will have to prove you have been married.
    As we also mentioned last time, there are other reasons you will need to prove to the Thai authorities you've been married. For example, to legitimise children, to extend a visa based on marriage to a Thai citizen and as part of the adoption process.
    Recently we have discussed how to get married before Thai governmental authorities, both within Thailand and at a Thai embassy or consulate outside. But what if you have been married outside of Thailand in a ceremony legal in another country? To prove to the Thai authorities that you are married under these circumstances, you will still need the document known as "registration of family status", or Khor Ror 22.
    So how do you get a registration of family status if you've been married outside Thailand?
    Remember, if you were married before a Royal Thai Embassy or consular official outside Thailand, you don't need a registration of family status. The marriage certificate or registration issued at the Thai embassy or consulate will be sufficient. Here are the steps to get the registration of family status if you were married outside Thailand, not before a Thai diplomatic officer, but in a legally binding marriage of another country. First you must go to the embassy in Thailand of the country where the marriage was performed. This embassy must certify that the marriage certificate or other official evidence of the marriage is genuine.
    The procedure to get the marriage certificate varies widely by country. For example, for the UK, this is done by bringing the original of the marriage certificate to the consular section of the British embassy in Bangkok, paying a fee of 1,450 and picking it up with the required certification the next morning. For the US the steps are as follows:
    - Obtain a sealed copy of the marriage certificate from the authority that issued it;
    - Get the marriage certificate authenticated at the Secretary of State for the state in which the marriage took place. This may, depending on the state, involve notarisation and a certification by a court clerk that the notary's term has not expired;
    - Obtain authentication by the US Secretary of State in the US by mail and paying a fee of US$7;
    - Obtain authentication by the consular section of the US Embassy.
    Next you have to have the authenticated marriage certificate translated by any competent translator and take both the original and the translation to the Department of Consular Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Chaeng Watthana Road in Bangkok. A legal officer there will put a signed sticker on the Thai version indicating it has been legalised by the Department of Consular Affairs.
    In Bangkok you and your spouse must next go to a district office. As mentioned in an earlier article, there are, citywide, 50 of these. Outside Bangkok you must go to the office of the amphur. You must have the following:
    - The original and signed copy of the Thai identification card of the Thai party and original and signed copy of the foreigner's passport;
    - The original and legalised Thai versions of the marriage certificate mentioned above.
    As with other meetings at these offices, you don't need an appointment, but your may have to wait without one.
    If all is in order, the district office or amphur will issue the registration of family status, the official proof in Thailand of your foreign marriage.
    Next time we'll talk about some of the rights and liabilities of married people in Thailand.
