If a person with a status of residence of "Spouse or Child of Japanese National" reaches the time to renew the status of residence while discussing divorce with his/her Japanese spouse, the marriage relationship is effectively broken down, Renewal of the status of residence of "Spouse or Child of Japanese National" will not be permitted.
Therefore, if you wish to continue staying in Japan, you will need to change your status of residence to another.
If you take over a child born between your Japanese spouse and continue to care and raise it, you can change to a "Long-Term Resident" based on certain requirements.
Even if you do not have children with your Japanese spouse, if you have a track record of continuing a normal marital relationship for a certain period of time and have sufficient assets to make a living, you are granted status of residence of “Long-Term Resident”.
However, if the above does not apply, it is necessary to consider changing to a status of residence other than "Long-Term Resident".
