Yes, there are many different websites offering Chinese Laws and Regulations, Englsih versions.

One of my favorites is at
http://www.google.com/#hl=en&gs_nf=1&cp=20&gs_id=2x&xhr=t&q=Chinese+laws+in+English&pf=p&newwindow=1&sclient=psy-ab&oq=Chinese+laws+in+English&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_sm=&gs_upl=&gs_l=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=75f

And the reason I like it is put out by University of Peking, and offers about 25 different locations to look inside, and if a page shows in Chinese, it has a way to click on English and get it translated.  It also has quite an inside on Supreme Court, regular Courts, and many other goodies.

Yes you can check out some of the previous websites that was given or in any case you could always go to the justice system and have them print out the laws for you or give you copies of the laws. Most places will give you at least a copy of the laws if it's for your own good. They wouldn't want people doing things they are not supposed to do here in China.

HappyExpat posted some really good websites for the most up to date laws. No if only the Chinese PSB and the local court systems would learn them my job would be soooo much easier

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
