WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE REGISTRATION OF CHILD ADOPTION?
Once registered, the Thai government recognizes the adoption and both parties gain the benefits of adoption.
1. The adopted child has the right to use the last name and inherit the assets of the adoptive parent. However, the adoptive parent cannot inherit the assets of the adopted person.
2. From registration, the adoptive parent has the authority to raise the adopted child as his or her own legal child.
3. From the date of registration, biological parents no longer have power or rights over the child.
It will be best to seek legal assistance from a competent lawyer because the process of child adoption is quite time-consuming and thorough. It requires a lot of documents, all of which will be in Thai language or will need the translations of all the documents into Thai. Issues of law, nationality and immigration are of great importance on the adoption laws of Thailand. Therefore, it is also necessary to coordinate between different related agencies.
