Child Custody

Under the Civil and Commercial Code of Thailand,

the term of the rights of custody is called “parental power”. The parental power is exercised by the father, the mother, or a third person who is a legal guardian of the child until the child reaches the legal age (20 years old), and a person exercising parental power has the right as follows:

(1) To determine the child’s place of residence

(2) To discipline the child reasonably

(3) To require the child to work, consistent with his or her abilities and status

(4) To demand the return of the child from someone else, including another parent who does not have custody rights and unlawfully detains the child

(5) To manage the property of the child with the restriction that selling, mortgaging, and exchange the property of the minor child must obtain the approval of the court


Child custody in Thailand can be obtained by two procedures as follows:

(1) By the mutual consent of the parties

(2) By the decision of the court
