Divorce agreements are good to have. If your divorce in Thailand is by mutual agreement then the unopposed divorce or divorce by consent needs to have a divorce agreement. The agreement is normally drafted by a divorce lawyer in Thailand as even though the divorce is by consent the agreement needs to cover all the aspects of the family and property afterwards. This includes property rights, child custody and how the family will deal with each other later.
Child custody battles in Thailand are not uncommon especially when it comes to expats. People might write off property in the name of savings costs during a divorce. However when it comes to their children it normally ends in long drawn-out court battles and at time violence which make news headlines. See the section on divorce documents in Thailand. Some of the headlines in Thailand over the past 5 years shows how custody and property battles look. They do turn ugly.
