Shared Parenting in Japan

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 4:38 pm Fri 17th May 2024

Legislation changes in Japan are expected to pass by 2026.

The new system will be implemented by fiscal 2026 and allow couples divorced before the implementation to switch to joint custody by filing a request with a family court.


  1. Some change is better than no change, so good news.
    It seems now a copy of NZ, bets all the Japan lawyers are happy.
    It’s not 50:50 just like NZ, it’s a contest and lawyers love that.
    There’s nothing like false allegations, for fortunes to be made.
    If the female wants the male gone, lawyers are there to help.

    What was worse then, for the Japanese man.
    That it was automatic, the mother got full custody.
    There was no battle of the mind, your fate is automatic.
    Now it’s just like NZ, the lawyers use the children as pawns.
    Tormented and ruined by the fight, they will suicide just like in NZ.

    There may be change, but it’s just a copied version of evil.

  2. I guess Japan is desperate, population decline is real.
    They are not like NZ, we hide our problems with immigration.
    There laws were insane, you could plan to get custody.
    If you had the kids at the relationship end, you got custody.
    There was nothing fair in Japan, for the victim parent.
    How much it affects birth rate, I’m guessing is unknown.
    Time will tell with the new laws, if they solved the problem.

    Meanwhile we have the same problem, we have a low birth rate.
    Since Japan is copying NZ, you can also expect a low birth rate.
    Either women don’t want babies, or men don’t want babies.
    So what will NZ change, to fix its birth rate.
    What laws are insane, so you can plan to get custody.
    The victim gender, has no choice but to not have kids.
    The risk of bad outcomes, is greater than the rewards.

    Things are bad, 1/2 of babies are conceived without consent already.
    Women do want children, but it is hard to find willing volunteers.
    The statistics say everything, the deal can really suck for men.
    There is no guarantee, you’re at the whim of someone’s planning.
    Countless babies are born in NZ, the father is automatically gone.
    The predators win, the law in NZ is there to help.
