JAPAN-DIPLOMACY-CHILDREN-LAW

Japan's Upper House members approve the international treaty Hague Convention after unanimous vote at the plenary session at the National Diet in Tokyo on May 22, 2013. Japan's parliament approved the treaty on child abductions, which requires nations to return snatched children to the countries where they usually reside, after decades of pressure from the United States and other Western nations. Hundreds of parents, mostly men from North America, Europe and elsewhere have been left without any recourse after their estranged partners took their half-Japanese children back to the country. Japan does not recognise joint custody and courts almost always order that children of divorcees live with their mothers.
