Immigration Law

Other than those in transit and citizens of certain countries, all persons are required to obtain a visa in order to enter in Thailand whatever their purpose may be (traveling, working, studying or simple retire in Thailand).

Furthermore, a foreign must obtain a valid work permit and the correct visa if he wants to work in Thailand. Failure to comply with these strict requirements may lead to severe sanctions such fines, imprisonment or even deportation.

The details of the Thai immigration laws and tax laws can be complex and sifting through them can be a meticulous job.

Last Wills and Testaments

It is highly recommended that you have a Last Will and Testament prepared for both your home country and Thailand. It’s important to plan in advance so your affairs are in order in the case of your passing. A Last Will and Testament will help relieve any additional stress to your family during this time.

As a foreigner, you may already have a Will drafted in your home country. However, in the unfortunate event of your passing in Thailand, it could become problematic in dealing with your Thai assets due to translations and government bodies. To avoid stress and confusion, we recommend having a Thai Will drafted for your assets in Thailand.

Antares’ professionals can help you draft and complete a Last Will and Testament, listing in detail your assets in Thailand, such as property, bank accounts, vehicles and personal items.

Litigation

Over the last few years in Thailand, foreign business transactions have rapidly risen, increasing the likelihood of litigations. Although Thais are known to be non-litigious, the rise of foreign residents has tampered and increased the judicial system activity. Foreigners are advised to always secure the services of a law firm in Thailand when faced with legal controversy in the country.

Disputes happen in business and whenever your business finds itself in a dispute, Antares can represent you through the whole process. We represented a myriad of clients and you will be in experienced hands from negotiation to court litigation.

Antares experienced litigators can assist you with the following matters:

• Disputes between vendors and customers
• Consumer Protection Law
• Breach of warranties and covenants related to acquisitions of businesses and properties
• Requests and Objections of Motions for Injunctions
• Business contracts and commercial disputes

Our goal is to help our clients resolve disputes and legal controversy as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our multilingual attorneys can use their intercultural communication skills to provide clear and effective dispute resolution.

Contract Drafting & Negotiations

At Antares, our experienced lawyers can assist you with any contract or agreement that needs to be drafted, revised or reviewed, both in Thai and English.

Notarial Services

A Notary Public is an official who is licensed to perform actions such as authenticating signatures or documents, witnessing persons under oath, or notarising documents. Notarisation promises authenticity of documents and signatures.

In Thailand, there are no notary publics and notary services and functions are carried out only by the lawyers that pass a professional notarial training course, called Notarial Services Attorneys. The Lawyers Council of Thailand monitors and oversees the notarial practices of the country.

All of our Certified Notarial Attorneys at Antares can perform the following services:

• Verification of the authenticity of signatures in a document
• Administration of oaths and affirmations
• Be a witness in cases that deem necessary
• Recognition and certification of documents
• Confirmation of the identity of parties to an agreement
