Waiting period after Divorce

Thailand Divorce

I have read that there is a waiting period for divorced person before one can remarry. I am recently divorced and would like to marry my Thai girlfriend.

The 310-day waiting period only applies for a female divorcee. In any case that she has recently divorced, a medical exam will be required before the registration to prove that she was not pregnant during the time of marriage. If she is pregnant then the marriage cannot be completed.

      The 310 days waiting time applies to any female who recently got divorced and wishes to get married in Thailand. This can be waived, however, as long as the female is proven not pregnant at the time of marriage.
