 Its all about the house. Half way through, couples fight for property in public after divorce.

Xiao Wang and his ex-husband divorced and raised his daughter Dandan alone. After being introduced and met Xiao Zhang, Xiao Wang quickly established a love relationship, registered for marriage and had a son Mingming. After their marriage, Xiaowang and Dandan became registered members of Xiaozhangs village group. They lived in the village together with Zhangs parents and Mingming.

During this period, Xiaowang and Zhangs parents jointly participated in the renovation of the house. When the village group was demolished, Xiao Zhangs father, as the head of the household, signed a demolition and resettlement agreement with the demolisher. Xiao Wang, Dandan, Xiao Zhang, Mingming and Xiao Zhangs parents were all demolished. Later, because Xiao Wang and Zhangs husband and wife were divorced by the breakdown agreement, they could not reach an agreement on the demolition and resettlement. Xiao Wang and Dandan were expelled from their homes and sued to the Wei Central Court.

Recently, the case was not heard by the Central Court. Xiaowang and Zhang formed a marriage relationship. Dandan, as a stepchild, formed a relationship of fostering and being fostered with his stepfather during their common life and became a legal member of the family. At the same time, as villagers of the village group, they should enjoy the same treatment of demolition and resettlement. Xiaowang and Dandan have the right to acquire the property rights and interests related to the demolition and resettlement according to the demolition and resettlement scheme and the demolition and resettlement agreement.

Eventually, the Central Court ruled that Xiaowang and Dandan lived together in a 129 square metre apartment, and each had 20 square metres of economic development housing. Neither side appealed the verdict.

The judge said that there are two points to be grasped in hearing such cases: first, the principle of maximizing the interests of minors; second, the principle of safeguarding the legitimate rights and interests of women and the elderly.
