At present time in Thailand, child support is essentially awarded in divorce cases. Under the current system of Thailand, a person that is owed child support can basically file a legal complaint at the local police and the person owing child support will surely find himself answering to the said complaint. The simplest solution would be to pay what is due. Consult a child custody lawyer is quite recommended if you have any child custody in Thailand.

If you think going back to your home country would help you avoid your financial obligations to the child – then you’re definitely wrong. Many fathers have been successfully railed in their home countries for child support, and eventually been sent back to where the mother and the child is.

The process is simple: Either a public child support office or a private company will file a legal complaint for an order of paternity against you in your foreign country. You will then be dragged to court, which usually results to the father demanding for a DNA test. Once the DNA tests are conducted, the next court date would be to establish the awarding of child support. The child support will be set as stated by the child support guidelines of your home country, and Thailand’s economy will not be placed into consideration. Also read the article on fathers rights in Thailand for more information as well as child support amount which has to be agreed on.

Child support costs will not be reduced by just going in and visit the child personally or bring the child to your home country to have a vacation. This is not legally possible because the courts in your home country do not have authority to order the mother of the child to grant you visiting rights or any access to the child. Those courts does not have jurisdiction over the mother and the child. If you want to obtain custody of the child or any visitation rights, you will have to pursue it legally in Thailand thru the Thai courts.

For the best protection and for the benefit of everyone, make sure everything is well taken care of.
