NIA Invites A Judge to Lecture on Law for New Resident Friends
New residents not only need to adapt to a new life in Taiwan but often face issues of policies. Besides, they sometimes don't know who to ask for help because of language barriers and the lack of familiarity with Taiwan. To let new residents have a more correct concept of laws and understand their rights and interests, Kaohsiung City First Service Center of the NIA particularly arranges a series of lectures about policies so that new residents will not let their rights and interests slip through their fingers.
"New Resident Family Education and Policies Publicity Lecture" particularly invites Judge Chen Mingfu from Taiwan High Court Kaohsiung Branch Court to teach new residents to understand the difficult Civil Law in a straightforward way; Judge Chen uses several examples to illustrate new residents' inheritance rights to make their foreign marriages more secure.
Judge Chen makes this hard lesson easy through his lively illustration that receives great responses from the new residents at the lecture. A Xing, a Vietnam new immigrant, shares that she used to think women who have married don't have inheritance rights, but she later realizes that inheritance rights are inclusive of debts.
Director of Kaohsiung City First Service Center, Xu Zhiquan, states that as the number of new residents in Taiwan has been gradually increasing, it is difficult for them to comprehensively understand Taiwanese laws and regulations so that they lose many rights due to language or cultural barriers. Therefore, Kaohsiung City First Service Center particularly holds a series of lectures about policies for them to protect their rights.
