To get the Parental rights and amendment to the Civil Code

I prepared a brief for my client on July 2007. He was the first client for me about trouble of divorce and children. Second client ended his life in suicide. October 30th is the anniversary of his death. After that trouble of divorce is increasing and becomes to change [abduction of spousal]. 
These destructions of the family are according to the manual. I felt these were preventing from the judicial systems. It means Japanese law doesn’t admit custody is not parental right. These problems caused from Japanese sole custody system. 
I would like to consider amending the Civil Code of the joint custody after divorce.

Susan Roos is wife of the U.S. Ambassador to Japan, and has recently spoken out regarding Japan’s position on the international child abduction issue:

“I’m a firm believer that children should have the love of both of their parents and so I feel that it is important for these international couples to be able to have both the fathers and the mothers see their children”
