╭ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ╮

  • Jurisdiction for International Divorce in China

Expatriates seeking to divorce in China must meet one of the following jurisdictional criteria:

  • One of the spouses is a Chinese national;

  • The marriage was registered in China;

  • Either spouse has been a habitual resident in China for at least one year;

  • Both parties mutually agree to divorce in China on the basis that they married outside of China and neither are Chinese, but they are habitually living in China continuously for a year or more.

  • How to choose? “DIVORCE BY AGREEMENT” or “DIVORCE BY LITIGATION”?

Consensual divorce refers to couples who register their marriage in China, where they also registered their divorce. Litigated divorce involves more complex issues such as court jurisdiction, validity of the marriage, property division, and child custody. For the most suitable approach for your situation, please consult our lawyers.

  • How long does expat divorce in China take?

Under the PRC Procedural Law, domestic cases resolved through summary procedures typically take 3 to 6 months. International cases, which may require service of documents and collection of evidence overseas, can take longer. Additionally, the appeal period for cross-border family cases is 30 days, compared to 15 days for domestic cases.

Therefore, a professional divorce lawyer can assist in comprehensively preparing the necessary divorce documents. Ensuring that all documents are legal and valid under Chinese law is crucial for expediting the divorce process.
