Legal Hurdles

May 29, 2024by RKS Editor0

LGBTQ+ individuals often face significant challenges in exercising their rights and those of their partners, especially in Hong Kong where the legal framework around end-of-life planning and medical decision making remains limited for same-sex couples.

During an interview with Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK)’s “The Close”, Sarina Cheung discussed the legal hurdles faced by same-sex couples in Hong Kong regarding an enduring power of attorney, which only allows the appointment of a representative to handle financial matters, while medical or welfare decisions cannot be delegated in the same way. Due to current limitations, this community continues to face obstacles when it comes to marital rights, legal protections, and family planning.
