Allison Monkhouse, an international funeral director with an office in Bangkok sponsored this free seminar. It was also supported by the Chiang Mai Expats Club and Lanna Care Net. Their head office is in Melbourne, Australia.
The Bangkok manager is Pim Karnasuta who has very good English skills.
About 200 people attended the seminar at the Le Meredian Hotel..
Subjects covered included laws of inheritance, statutory heirs, succession,and last will and testament in Thailand, funerals and funeral pre-planning and more.
In Thailand, if the death is confirmed by a doctor, the police in Thailand will need to be involved. Accidental deaths or deaths in a home or a hotel require a police report. The police will first investigate the scene together with the forensic team to determine the cause of death.
If the person passed away in a hospital, a death certificate will be issued by a doctor of that hospital and the Thai police will file a report.
An excellent seminar and very helpful to expats. A lively question and answer period followed.
