AbstractThe mobility of people across international borders is an increasing trend. Increased contact between Hong Kong and mainland China residents has resulted in rising marriages following the 1980s’ ‘open door’ policy of China. The existing quota for Chinese residents to receive the family reunion permit remains limited. The following paper uses a case study approach to analyze emergent service needs and responses for the divided family. Family problems often become more complex escalating into divorce due to enforced separation across the border resulting in complex legal issues and separate social welfare and legal systems present unique challenges for social work intervention promoting child welfare.
