ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF BIRTH
This shall be made through notification pursuant to the provisions of the Family Registration Act.
We support the acquisition and preparation of documents for the acknowledgement of birth. We also support cases where a Japanese father does not want to recognize the birth of his child. In this case, with the help of our partner lawyers, we support the filing of the petition for the acknowledgement of birth of the child in Japan Family Court. Afterwards if the child is still under 20 years of age, we can process the acquisition of his/her Japanese nationality. Also in this case, if the mother and child are presently not in Japan, we also support their visa application to make the petition for the acknowledgement of birth of the child in Japan court possible.
