Kidnapping Case Spotlights Japan’s Child Custody Law

If you’re a non-Japanese married to a Japanese citizen, be aware that if you were to divorce, you have no custody rights over your children. This issue has come into the spotlight with American Christopher Savoie’s case, after his ex-wife brought their children from the US to Japan without his knowledge. And now that they are in Japan, he has no rights to bring them back.

Savioe made a desperate attempt to retrieve his children and bring them to the American embassy, but he was arrested at the gates and remains presently in a Japanese jail.  Check out CNN’s coverage of the event.

Do you think this Japanese law needs to be reformed? Let us know in the comments.
