New China Law Requires Adult Children to Visit Their Elderly Parents

The new law allows elderly parents to sue their children if they feel neglected or abandoned

China’s national legislators has submitted a new law that requires adult children to visit their elderly parents regularly or risk getting sued.

The law allows parents to sue their children if they feel neglected. Even in a family oriented country like China, elderly parents are also often abandoned and neglected by their children.

One proof is a local news of a 90 year-old grandmother who was forced by her son to live in a pigpen for two years. Some leave their parents in elderly homes if they are unable to care for them. While some end up abusing them and illegally control their finances without their consent.

The law does not specify how often the children must visit their aging parents.
