Father consent for child to move with the mother

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife who currently leaves in Japan has no contact with the father of her child. She never did. He disappeared from her life and never provided any support.

We are starting the process of I-130 in connection with getting CR-1 visa. We know at some point in the future the father consent will be needed to make sure her son (12 at this time) can move to the USA. What's the best way to approach this if the father cannot be located and basically never existed in her son's life.

I have friends stuck in USCIS immigration Hell over this. Seek a lawyer now and get the paperwork drawn up now about custody and you don;t know where father is and all that.

The service Centers lately have been asking at the Petition submission point for documents that show you have parental authority to move the child. It use to be a at embassy level. I have seen where some have to conduct DNA even at the petition level.

So get your ducks in a row now and get that court document done now.

Your wife doesn't need any paperworks from her ex husband. There is no required child support in Japan. It'll be just an agreement between estranged couple.

Thanks for the replies.

As far as "...no required child support in Japan". Well, does the child support have anything to do with the father consent. Aren't those two different things? Father may have no child support obligation but as to the law isn't he still considered a father?

Also if it is correct will American immigration officers be aware of it. Which law applies, American or Japan?

I was not attempting to "hijack" the thread. My situation is similar to that of the original poster so figured I would put it in the same thread. But if you would rather I start a new thread that is what i will do.

Is the child's father a Japanese? If so then no need for any paperworks from him unless your wife and him has an agreement ( regular visitation, child support etc.). Since they have no connection at all, he has already waived his rights to the child. If you get the child's koseki shohon ( certificate of his registry ) , you will see both parents name but on bottom line it will only be the mother's name where it states she has sole parental authority. I made all the my paperworks without disturbing my ex. Everything ( passport, school records , residence certificate and registry records ). We are in U.S. now. We made it in 5 months after filing I-129f. I am speaking for the legal documents obtained in Japan and accepted by the U.S. Government

Hi,

When you start asking about your case, it just creates confusion because people will mix up your facts with the OP's. That is why it's best to start your own thread about your case.
