  • Assisted a father in a child custody matter to cooperate with government agencies and allow him to take his child outside of Thailand.

  • Acted for a father in a child abduction case involving the Hague Convention of Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. After presenting our supporting evidence, we successfully obtained sole legal custody for the father over his daughter.

  • In a case involving a mother attempting to abduct her child for the second time, we assisted the father to obtain sole legal custody over his daughter by filing a police report and engaging the relevant government authorities.

  • Represented a father who had filed for divorce in a case to prove the mother was unfit to act as guardian of their child, who was a minor. The courts rarely grant fathers custody over young daughters, but against the odds, we secured an appeal judgment in our favor.

  • Assisted couples through the mediation process in divorces, helping them reach amicable agreements and save time and money.
