INHERITANCE:

When someone dies their estate goes to their heirs. There are 2 types.

If no will statutory heirs will inherit in the following order:

1/. Children, parents & spouse of the deceased- equal shares.

2/.Parents & spouse of the deceased-- spouse gets 1/2

3/. Full brothers & full sisters ---spouse 1/2

4/. Half brothers, sisters ---- spouse 2/3rds

5/. Grandfathers, grandmothers ---- spouse 2/3rds

6/. Uncles and Aunties  ----spouse 2/3rds

7/. None of the above --- spouse 100%

  If an heir in a higher order exists, heirs in the lower orders have no rights whatsoever. Probate is not required under Thai law and trusts are not allowed under Thai law. Current law has no levy of taxes on inheritances.

WILLS:

If living in Thailand our law Office can help a foreigner with a will. It saves a lot of hassle if you do not have one.
