7. Letter of verification stating that the applicant has no criminal record (verification have to valid for not more than three months and must be issued from a state or Federal Bureau of Investigation only. Online criminal record without authorizerís signature is unacceptable)

In the past I was able go to a local police department and request a criminal record (history). I havenít been able to do that when applying for my O-A Visa for the past several years. Three weeks turnaround time.

In the UK one can mail the required info or apply online for the "Police Certificate" Cost varies, a 2 working day, plus a receipt day and a posting day turnaround is 80GBP, the same but 10 working day is 45GBP. Sent to ACRO.

One does receive a very nice certificate though which impresses the paper dominated Thai system.

They seem to be trying to emulate the Malaysian process but without offering anything tangible in return such as land ownership, employment or even importing one's own car.

Stupid, really, but typically Thai.

This.

Does anyone know if there is a way to avoid a trip to court for the spouse of the deceased?
As of yesterday was told no, if there are accounts/investments/property etc in the name of the deceased or jointly, even though the will is in surviving spouse's favour and they are next in line anyway. Makes sense, in quaint Thai fashion, when you imagine walking into a bank/broker/land registry and trying to get access to the mother lode on the strength of a death certificate and/or will.

My understanding for a straightforward wife gets the lot will is that the hearing is a simple process (in principle), court verifies the will, associated documents/paperwork and identities before stamping it through. How it works in practice may be different.
