Japan needs to sign the Hague agreement, why won't they? The abusive father excuse is insane. My husband is Japanese we live in the US. I want to divorce him badly but am convinced he would take my children to Japan. He and his parents are extremely bonded to my children (we used to live there). I just visited Japan and was terrified the entire time that I would not be able to leave with my kids. I had him sign an agreement before we left ( not that a notorized US document means anything abroad). I told him that I needed it in case he had an accident while we were visiting, so the kids and I could leave without him. I also made sure I was listed as mother on the kohon seki (official Japanese registry) and that I had a copy of it. But basicially I am trapped in the marriage until they sign it. His parents live in the countryside and are related to half the prefecture, it would be very easy to hide a child. I cannot even find most of the homes I have been to (streets are winding and have no names).
