An uncontested divorce is an administrative form of divorce in Thailand. Couples prefer it because it is quick and easy. However, not all couples can take advantage of this type of divorce. Only those who have registered their marriage in Thailand can have this divorce as an option.

Uncontested Divorce in Thailand

Divorce Procedure

Divorcing couples must appear in person before the local registration office to conduct the procedure. A family member, attorney, or lawyer cannot represent them. Personal appearance is necessary because the parties must answer questions regarding their decision to end the marriage. The officer must verify that the parties' decision to divorce was made voluntarily and without coercion.

Traditionally, couples were required to divorce in the same Amphur where they registered their marriage. Still, recently couples have been allowed to obtain an uncontested divorce in an Amphur other than where the marriage was registered. Amphur may require more documentation before the divorce is processed.
