In order for the status of residence of "Spouse or Child of Japanese National" to be approved, both parties must have the intention to continue the marriage, and in principle must live together and cooperate and support each other.
However, even if both spouses intend to live together, they may not be able to live together.
For example, a foreign spouse who originally lived together in Japan was forced to leave his family behind due to the circumstances of the company he works for, or a Japanese spouse lives with a parent and separates from a foreign spouse for nursing care of a parent.
In such cases, it can be said that both spouses intend to continue the marriage and are cooperating and helping each other, so the status of residence of “Spouse or Child of Japanese National” is recognized.
However, it is necessary to properly explain to the Immigration Bureau that there are such unavoidable circumstances.
