    Is it possible to put a piece of land in my Lao child's name? Does it offer any advantages over putting it in my Lao wife's name in case of a dispute, divorce or whatever?

    No problem if your wife is honest to you
    I will tell you the true story near my house
    One French girl married to Lao man
    First 2-3 years is o.k but longer they separate
    Could you imagine what happen to her?

    All properties are issue under her husband' name such as : House, land, cars and everything
    She couldn't take anything with her.

    I'm telling you the true story but you don't have to be afraid

    It's up to fate !
    We are Lao. We believe in Buddhism. If you do good thing good thing will return to you !

    Regards,

    I'm not after these kinds of stories, I just want to know if there is any tangible benefit in putting property in my child's name over my wife's name. Thanks anyway :).

    I considered putting some land into my Lao child's name. According to the lawyers I talked to, no minor (person under 18 years of age) can have their name on a land title in Laos. Of course this being Laos, if you ask 8 different people the same question, you will get 10 different answers.

    I bought land up in Luang Prabang a few years ago and I wouldn't do it unless they put it in my sons name which was then, 3 years old. so yes, you can do it with official documents and all, but the laos partner still had to sign it.

    Hi OP, you 100% CANT put it in your sons name.
    I tried to do the same. Must be 21 i think to legally sign in Laos. All the best.

    There appears to be different answers here already. They're probably all correct.
