Thailand Civil Cases

Civil Case Lawyer in Thailand

Proceedings in Civil and Commercial cases in Thailand are governed by the Civil Procedure Code 1935.

The rules in the Code are practical, giving the court wide discretion in directing proceedings

It is a fundamental Principle of the Code that all trials must be held in open court and in the presence of all parties except in case of default of appearance or in case of a necessity to maintain order in court. However, the court may proceed with the hearing in the absence of the party in default or expelled on the grounds of improper behavior.

In the event that the court decides that the subject matter should not be disclosed to the general public, it may sit in camera, this means that the public and the press are excluded, and no reports may be published without the permission from the court. Other essential principles of civil procedure include the following;

Both sides are given an equal opportunity to be heard, and are entitled to legal representation.

Witnesses are subjected to examination, cross-examination and re-examination.

The court shall have full power to decide whether the evidence as given by the parties is relevant to the issue and is sufficient to be taken as conclusive or not and then to give judgment accordingly.

The judgment must state the grounds on which it is based. Although the judgment may be appealed to the Court of Appeal and further appealed to the Supreme Court, the lodging of an appeal or further appeal does not automatically cause a stay of execution of the judgment or order of the court. The party lodging the appeal may, however, apply to the Court of Appeal or the Supreme Court for such stay of execution.

The cases in the Court of First Instance are concluded within 8-10 months. However in the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court it is impossible to give timescales.
