Abstract

In 2014, Japan became the last G7 industrialized nation to sign the Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. In order for the Convention to provide effective relief to parents in Japan, this Article recommends examining joint custody, visitation, and the best interests of the child standard. This would track the developments in custody law that resulted in the modern custody framework in the United States.

Keywords: family law, comparative family law, domestic relations, Japan, Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction
