Mistresses Have Legal Rights in China’s Family Court, According to One Lawyer

A few months ago, a Beijing attorney reportedly came up with the idea of representing “the other women” in family court cases.

So he “reached out” to mistresses with advertising.

And at least a few paramours allegedly responded.

Reaction has not been limited to potential clients though.

The lawyer’s own wife has since filed for divorce.

And the lawyer has also reportedly been subjected to sharp criticism from other quarters as well.

It is unclear whether the lawyer will stick to representing mistresses as a matter of principle – or move on to “safer” legal work.
