The case after divorcing a Japanese

Hi, everyone. I’m Nozomi, an immigration lawyer in japan.
Today, I’ll tell you the case after divorcing a Japanese but want to continue living in Japan.

You may be able to obtain a status of residence “Long Term Resident” to stay in Japan even after divorcing a Japanese.

[Point]

  • Judgment is comprehensively based on economic conditions, period of marriage, cause of divorce, presence of children, etc.
  • The following situations tend to be permitted. The more requirements you meet, the better.

1.Even after divorce, there must be assets and income to run an independent living.

After divorce, you need to earn enough to live without depending on the country.


2.Have a child with the Japanese and have Custody or Parental authority of the child

Having child custody is a significant advantage. Because the child is Japanese nationality, it is necessary to continue raising in Japan.


3.If there are no children, the actual marriage period must be at least 3 years.

It is important to note that the marriage period here is based on the premise that you live together and does not include a separate period.


4.The cause of the divorce is the Japanese spouse.

It is important to note that the marriage period here is based on the premise that you live together and does not include a separate period.


5.The status of residence so far is good.

During your stay so far, it is desirable not to be jailed (including postponement) and fines, as well as free from traffic violations.
