    Change of land ownership due to divorce

    looking to change all land we have purchased into my sons name.

    He is 10yrs old, there seems to be conflicting views on other forums regarding if it can be done or not.

    I am hoping not to use a lawyer.

    Has anyone came across any information in Thai regarding this.?

    My understanding, just go to the land office and change the name.
    If charnote title must be over 10 years old.
    Other titles will be different. Jim

    Wife says she has been, and they have said that, chanote can't be changed until twenty years old.

    The info i have seen on other boards says it can happen but land offices when a farang is involved they are reluctant to do.

    so the alternative being if i had something in thai that is law they would have no alternative but to change.

    Is your wife happy to do it, Jack? If she is, there will be no need to show a farang face.

    Says she has, but who knows with Thai women the fear of the divorce and her never hearing from me again could be a factor of not doing,even though she has been assured the kids will always be taken care of.

    Trouble with Thais, they won't ask questions, land office says something, wife gets up and leaves.

    Has your child got an English name, land office not dealt with a farang name before, can't lose face, make up an excuse.
    Had similar problem years ago, kids born in OZ, Thai citizens, go to the amphore to put their names in the house book. First time for my amphor, no no knows what to do.
    Get told only Thai names allowed on the house book; total crap to save face.

    Will have a look at the act and see what I can find. Jim

    James his name is Thai, but has a farang surname, we are in the sticks, possibly the bottle of Johnnie walker black label may help?

    You might try printing this out, in Thai.

    Civil code.

    Section 1577. A person may transfer by legacy or gift a property to a minor, subject to its being managed, up to the time of majority, by a person other than the person exercising parental power.

    Such manager must be named by the transferor, in default, or by court and his management shall be subjected to Section 56, Section 57 and Section 60.

    Section 1578. When parental power ceases as the minor is sui juris, the person who exercised parental power must hand over to the child for certification, without delay, the property so managed and render to him a written account thereof, and if there is any document relating thereto, it shall be handed over at the same time as the account.

    If the parental power ceases other than those mentioned in paragraph one, the property, account and document relating to management of the property shall be handed over to the person exercising parental power, if any, or to the guardian, as the case may be, for certification.

    Thanks James i will have to get a Thai speaker to do so, as google translate can be a bit of a problem sometimes.

    I also just found the main land office in BKK, so will try that to.

    No need to google translate, just get the Thai version of the Civil code up and print sections 1577 and 8.
