Thai law is straightforward when it comes to properties acquired during marriage. These properties are referred to as community property or Sin Somoros in Thai. These properties are divided equally among husband and wife in the event of divorce. Community property however, precludes properties acquired through inheritance or given as a gift. Personal property or properties acquired before marriage remains a separate property of the foreigner during and after marriage. A well drafted prenuptial agreement to be registered during marriage is your best weapon to safeguard your personal properties and future investments.
