    vehicles

    Any know the surest way to pass on family vehicles (books and insurance in my name) and a small savings account (~20-100k) should I die suddenly here or out of the country. No concern about her immediate situation but don't want to pile up problems and certainly don't want my sisters involved. Have a U.S. marriage that has never been registered at the local amphur. Can a will cover any and all vehicles or does the will need to be re-written with each change.

    We're in exactly the same boat here Terry. Parting with 10 large (or whatever it might cost you at the Law firm you chose) is a fairly cheap price to pay for the peace of mind it brings...

    So there are no questions about who controls use and maintenance. Never a question of whether her relatives wear seat belts, which insurance agent to use, where it is stored when we are away, or whether to change the oil and filter at 3k.

    mudcat, if your married it's communal property, does your wife use your name, then everything here goes to her on your death.
    That includes your bank account.

    Today we attended a Family lawyer who was recommended to me by a property lawyer I know.

    Will sorted, drawn up witnessed and two copies issued. One for me and one for the Handbag.

    In and out in 30 minutes .

    2k Baht.

    love Thailand, can get shit done.

    ^Good on 'ya then Terry, job done. I'll be giving my Lawyer a gentle serve when we next meet over his pricing structure, might even sue him for overcharging .

    I think your Lawyer has taken the piss and seen you coming mate.

    As I said before 10 K is 400 large AUD.

    In Perth I can get a complex will draw up for $ 300 AUD.


    2 K Baht is fairly well on the money for Thailand considering the time frame involved and drawing up a very simple Will.

    I said we were with him for 30 minutes but it was more like 20 minutes.

    He just downloaded the forms, altered the names, placed the details of my Bank books and my Passport on separate pages. Added a copy of the Handbags Identity card as well.

    I signed it, he then wandered off to get it witnessed, gave me a copy and we walked out. Peace of piss.

    Here is the big difference. We started the process by contacting this Thai lawyer I know, in turn he put me in Contact with this lawyer who does Wills.

    The guy calls the Handbag the same day and we were sitting in front of him the next day doing the business.

    In Perth I must book two weeks ahead to make a new will or alter an existing will.

    I then wait another week or two until they get around to actually doing it.

    The whole system shits me to death.

    In Thailand they just do it.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    Suppose I might as well do a basic Thai will for my Thai property.

    How much to do a basic one leaving my condo, car, motorbikes and bank accounts to Mini-Luigioese?
