Are you looking into child protection orders in Beijing? Child abuse and child protection are very serious important topics.
Child abuse can mean psychological abuses, physical and mental, and they violate the law on the protection of minors.
Chinese law focuses on anti-domestic violence laws and fighting violence against children.
If you need a lawyer or attorney in Beijing to help you with child protection orders, contact us.
Violence against children is a hybrid between criminal law and family law.
There are organizations like the Women’s Federation that help protect children from being kidnapped.
Of course, women can also kidnap children. The People’s Court of China is often willing to issue protection orders.

Law On The Protection Of Minors | Child Protection Orders In Beijing
A common reason why someone reaches out to us is that their child has been taken from a western country to China.
For example, let’s say there is a couple that is getting divorced in Los Angeles. One or both of the parents are from Beijing.
Suddenly, the Beijing parent takes the child or children on a flight and leaves the United States.
If the parent in Los Angeles is Chinese, they might contact the Beijing police. But what if they are not Chinese?
They should speak to our lawyers. Our lawyers can file something in the Beijing court to have the children returned to the United States.
The great thing about ClearWay Law is that we have lawyers in multiple countries. These lawyers and attorneys can work together.
Anti-Domestic Violence Law | Child Protection Orders In Beijing
This article is about children, so we are not going to get into spousal domestic violence. However, some people abuse their children.
This can include physical and mental suffering. It can also include starving a child, or not providing for them.
If you are aware of child victims, you should get one of our attorneys to apply for a child protection order in China.
Abuse can be because of gambling, drugs, alcohol, or poverty. Sometimes people are just violent.
Some parents don’t have the ability or resources to be parents.
Sometimes, a family friend or family member will apply for guardianship for the child.
Even if the child is not yours, you can hire a law firm to help you protect the child.
Protection Order Is Not A Custody Order
If your goal is to get custody of your child, do not try and use the protection order. A protection order does not give you custody.
You will need to go through the formal process of applying for custody of your children in China.
Protection orders are often temporary. Putting a restraining order on the parent that has custody will not be enough.
The judges in China will be very careful about doing this. The person might be trying to get around the custody order.
Instead, you would have to file an emergency order for custody.
Also, if you have never called the police or child protective services, it’s suspicious.
The police are the only ones that are available 24/7. Lawyers take time to get court orders.
