Types of Divorce in Thailand


Uncontested Divorce

This type of divorce, also commonly referred to as the administrative divorce, is a separation where both partners give consent to end the marriage. No specific ground to sever the marriage is required by the District Office. It is the preferred way of ending marriage for most couples, but note that both partners must be physically present when submitting the application. The costs of uncontested divorce are relatively low, the separation process has fewer conflicts and obstacles, and may be concluded through the set up process in just one day.

Contested Divorce

Contrary to the uncontested divorce, contested divorce takes place at the court, which will grant divorce only on serious legal grounds. Those can be adultery, doing physical or mental harm to the other partner, abandonment, mental illness or disagreements on child custody to name a few. This type of divorce is usually requested by one party and further help with resolution is required from the court. However, costs involved in contested divorce are usually much higher than in its counterpart.
