If a child is taken to the US, or any number of other countries, there are court and enforcement mechanisms in place to ensure the childs best interests and access to both parents. In Japan there is no enforcement in these cases, let alone equal standing in the courts. This issue affects Japanese and non-Japanese parents. I saw someone talking about this being a personal issue. The issue is ptotecting children and not catering to wagamama parents who selfishly keep the other parent out of their childs' life. The US legislation is an effort to level the playing field and protect kids. In the us if domestic abuse is demonstrated the custody is modified. In Japan if there is domestic abuse the courts and police can do nothing. Thos has to change.
