The custody rights for kids you need to know under China's law

In case of divorce, generally, couples will fight for the custody of kids if they have. How will the court in China make the judgment on custody?

The following points are based on judicial practice in China:

1.if the kid is less than 2 years old, generally, the court will support the custody claim of the mother.

2. If the kid is more than 2 years old and less than 8 years old, both couples have a 50% chance to get custody of the kid.

3. If the kid is more than 8 years old, he or she can decide with whom he or she wants to live.

No matter who gets custody of the kid, the other party is entitled to see the kid regularly. Couples can negotiate about the visit. The other party also has the duty to raise the kid. It means that he or she needs to give money to support the kid.
