Article summary:

1. Japan's family law is inadequate in protecting children and victims of domestic violence, leading to issues such as poverty among single mothers and joint custody problems after divorce from child abduction.

2. Inheritance and divorce tend to cause problems in Japan due to the lack of involvement of professionals in settling these matters. In contrast, Western countries have neutral judicial infrastructure that carefully examines income and property to protect the rights of economically vulnerable parties.

3. The Japanese Civil Code was created based on European civil law during the Meiji era, but Japan has not caught up with Western legal systems in terms of notary publics and dealing with domestic violence. As a result, those with bargaining power have an advantage in divorce agreements, while victims of domestic violence may be forced to pay for their own protection or buy an agreement from their abuser.
