1. In terms of paragraph 4 of article 31 of the Immigration Act, permitted residence will be nullified and an ARC will be revoked upon non-existence of residence cause during residence. An ARC will be revoked by law upon divorce of a foreign spouse from a national, so the residence of 2 marriages cannot be calculated altogether. 

2. A foreign spouse acquiring the guardian of minor biological children with household registered in the Taiwan Areas after divorced from a national with household registered in the Taiwan Areas may be granted longer residence. Where a total sum of said residence and of the residence of the second marriage meets the circumstance of legal residence for consecutive 5 years, the application for permanent residence may be submitted.
