Kyogi rikon

Q Is a Kyogi rikon registered in Japan valid in England ?

AYes, it is valid under the conditions of Family Law Act.

A kyogi (kyougi) rikon (divorce) is a very simple procedure for divorce in Japan. Spouses have only to fill in and sign on a form and submit it at a city office(hall) to get a divorce in the procedure.

"the Japanese kyogi rikon contains sufficient state regulation for the divorce to be a proceedings divorce". (Family Law Act 1986 s46 "obtained by means of proceedings", H. v H. [2006] EWHC 2989(Fam); [2007] 1 F.L.R. 1318) -- Morris The Conflict of Laws 7th, at 270.

協議離婚 イングランドで有効か

Q 日本でなされた協議離婚はイギリス(イングランド)で有効な離婚と認められますか?

A Family Law Act 1986 s46により有効であるとの判例があります(Morris The Conflict of Laws 7th, at 270.)

もっとも協議離婚の際の事情などが考慮されることも考えられますので詳しくは弁護士に相談することをお勧めします。
