    How to get sole custody.

    I'm getting married soon. The sticking point I have for the new wife is that I want her to have full legal custody of the children prior to our getting married so that I can adopt them once we have exchanged our vows.

    The birth father has paid ZERO support, education anything since last January, though the court ordered him to. The kids live with us, exclusively, I pay for all support and schooling.

    What paperwork do we need for this? I appreciate any help or advice that you can give that will make this process relatively unconfusing.

    The lawyer is the only way really to be sure. How much would the scum bag want? Could you just pay it depending on how much? but make sure he signs the necessary documents and have witnesses. Then later when the kids are older they will know how much you really wanted them and how little the scum bag did.

    Good luck, Jake

    PS I take you are 110 percent sure about the mother right?

    well, if he is some poor alcoholic issan fart, you may want to bribe some police help. I know one situation where that worked. Otherwise, the lawyer to draw up an agreement where he relinquishes custody... good luck there though

    Re: How to get sole custody.

    One could come to "an arrangement" with either a friendly policeman or two,or again one could find a couple of freelance Thai "spin doctors", who for about 15,000 -20,000 baht would probably convince the errant parent it would be in his best interest to surrender custody to the good lady ex wife.

    Prices are possibly higher for these " experts " at this moment in time due to the upcoming exercise of enacting ones franchise by the Thai population on December the 23rd 2007.

    They would probably suggest that if he (ex husband) wanted to continue his habits (like breathing) an unconditional surrender would be in the best interest of all parties concerned,and of course no further contact at all with said ex lady wife and the children.

    And then you'll have about a three year process of adopting your wifes children. I hear its a much easier process if you go back home with the kids. Perhaps 6 months.
