Divorce is legally recognized simply on submission of divorce documents.
Sole custody of your children may be decided on the basis of the documents and without consideration of a court. If your children are living with your spouse, it is nearly impossible to win a change in custody.
Even if your signature on the divorce application was forged, the government may accept and the divorce will be in effect.
Submit a “Rikon Fujyuri Moushidesho” form to your local city hall to avoid being divorced without your agreement.
