Q: In cases of divorce in China, what usually happens to the child?

Do they go with one parent or the other? Joint custody? Is the child stigmatized?

If the divorce is between two Chinese nationals, then, from what I hear, in most situations, it is the mother that obtains custody of the child if the child is less than two years old. Children between the ages and three and nine are generally given to the mother, unless the mother leads a questionable lifestyle. In the case of a child over 10 years old, the wishes of the child are taken into account by the court before a final determination is made..  This is only what I have been told by my Chinese friends.  If the divorce is between a Chinese national and a foreign parent, then I have been told that in most cases custody is given to the parent who is a Chinese national.  Is the child stigmatized -- by whom and for what reason?

I've seen a few divorces and in every case where the child was a boy, he went with the father.  the one girl child i saw went with the mother.  I'll let you decide what that means.   of course the fathers had more guanxi.

That all depends. It could be joint custody or sole custody or if either parent is not fit to take care of the child the child usually goes to the more competent grand parent.

A:it is up to you do decide how much money you are prepared to spend on your family.if you buy fake goods you are supporting what would be considered (possibly) criminals as faking products is considered a criminal activity in many other countries.do you support criminal activity?not knowing this seems unbelievable.but in China this is considered 'clever'I am surprised at the questions you ask.I can not decide if you are really as naive as your questions make you seem, as these are what I would expect a normal person to ask friends.  -- sorrel
