Hi all.

I sit possible for my Thai wife to become legal guardian for her Thai niece? We don't want to go down full adoption route just yet.

She already lives with us and we support her, her dad lives away and does not support her, nor two other daughters !! and her mom   is alive (just) bit abandoned her at birth.

We want to be able to take her to UK for holidays, HK and other countries I work in when we go together etc. and its almost impossible for us to get her a thai passport and take her with us currently.

Her dad is a nice guy, just not very responsible and he has no issue with us adopting or being guardian.

You can be the guardian with a letter from the parents, which should include the right to travel internationally with the child. Might be best to have a lawyer prepare a document. But it doesn't give you parental rights, meaning that the parents can always change their mind and still need to sign for a passport.

I have no issue if the dad did change his mind but I know he won't ? For the mom zero chance if she shows up near the house she will be arrested and jailed ? So do you mean that the dad signs for the guardianship and for the passport, which I assumed anyhow, or does he also have to sign every time we travel once we get her a passport?

The guardianship document could give permanent permission to travel with the child so you would not need a signature everytime you want to travel abroad with the child.

 

As for the passport both parents need to sign for a passport, unless the father has sole custody over the child. So the father would need to get sole custody first to be able to get a passport for the child.
