    Must you do this if you make a will?

    Take it to the Amphur and register it there?

    Not necessary to register a will in The US. What does the will cover? Just assets in Thailand? If you keep your savings outside Thailand is a will registered in Thailand recognized in farangland? I guess I really mean the Thai probate proceedings. All the probate proceedings follow state law so you will not be a resident of any state if you are living in Thailand for many years. So if you have a a house your kids live in in stateside what happens? Sounds like a mess.

    *this article was written some time ago and the rules may have changed*

    It depends what type of will. This article might help : http://teakdoor.com/williams-legal-s...-thailand.html (Wills and Estate Planning - Thailand)

    I believe that a 'Public Will' (section1658) made at the Amphur is the only Will in Thailand that cannot be contested in the event of death. Is this correct ?

    Could be, though I'd be surprised if any Will was bulletproof in that respect.

    I can imagine many lay reasons to contest a Will, and no doubt a lawyer could add to it...these include poor wording or grammar (my first Thai Will drafted by a Thai lawman), ambiguity (same), inaccurate particulars and ID features of a beneficiary (same), or if it contains illegal, conflicting, unreasonable or impractical instructions.
