Separation may be a factor, but not a clincher, in divorce cases in Japan

Familia2016 | Agosto 7
“If I remain living abroad separated from my husband for a time, can I then come back and file for divorce without his consent?”
asks a reader.

Trapped, as to your final question, regardless of whether a couple lives apart for a certain period or not, the answer is no — it is not possible to obtain a divorce by filing with a Japanese Embassy abroad. As your husband is Japanese and has an address in this country, the courts here have jurisdiction over the marriage — and under Japanese law, put simply, either an agreement between a couple to divorce or a court judgment admitting the existence of legal grounds for divorce is required.
