Thank you for ackowledging that life here as a foreign spouse is hard. In the ol country, we have open borders policy, and the Taiwanese comunity was in the 20 thousands when I left. They were mostly tight and were able to have support, both from our gummit and the community. Heck, they had a great buxiban for nationality tests. And a fierce competition with the Cantonese community for the new year’s Dragon Dance parade.
I chose to migrate here and as far as my soon must change eyeglasses tell me, the labor law says that in the case of foreigners, a translated version must be presented. Otherwise, my signature is not valid. That this is even falunted by the gummit tells me that the rule of law is flaky, but the letter is there.
I wonder what resources are available to foreign spouses before they come to Taiwan. Are they told division of properties is not 50-50 like in some of our countries, for exmaple? Or custody details? Taxes? heck, clear on ARC procedures. That is the gummit’s fault.
Even in my own country -heck, especially where I come from- a contract in legalese is for the experts to understand and the layman to doubt.
But yes, sucks to be a worker here. No argument there.
got a pal with Oxford account, will have him dl teh whole bit. seems a buit weird to say socially women are preferred, and yes, alimony is yet a weird alien concept here.
