If a foreign national raises a child born to a Japanese person as parental authority after divorce or bereavement of the Japanese person, the foreigner may be granted the status of residence of "Long-Term Resident(LTR)" .
The conditions for this change to “Long-Term Resident(LTR)” to be permitted are as follows:
- A child supported by a foreigner must be the biological child of the foreigner born with a Japanese.
- The foreign national has parental authority over the child.
- The foreign national actually takes custody and raises the child.
- The foreign national has sufficient assets or skills to make a living.
Marriage between a foreigner and a Japanese person is not necessarily a requirement for the approval of this "Long-Term Resident(LTR)".
If the foreigner is not officially married to a Japanese person, if the above conditions are met, there is a possibility that a "Long-Term Resident(LTR)" will be recognized.
If you have any of the above, please feel free to contact our office.
