US Official In Talks With Japan Regarding International Child Custody Issues
In Japan, usually only one parent gets custody of the children in the wake of a divorce, and many agree that the system is somewhat biased against fathers.
This week, however, the top US diplomat for East Asia Kurt Campbell met with top Japanese officials in order to voice the United State’s concern with Japan’s policies. Japan is the only first world country that did not sign the 1980 Hague Convention that outlines appropriate international child custody actions. Justice Minister Keiko Chiba agreed that the subject was an important one to discuss.
