British Expat Divorce in Japan

In a series of new podcasts, solicitors and barristers from Expatriate Law will interview leading family lawyers from other jurisdictions around the world. The podcasts will allow expat clients an overview of the family laws that will apply in the country in which they live.

Makiko specialises in international family law, in particular divorce and financial settlements with an international dimension, child custody disputes, child abduction and inheritance. Makiko is a member of the Hague Convention Working Group of the Japan Federation of Bar Associations, a member of the Family Law Committee of the Japan Federation of Bar Associations, and the Chair of the Foreigners’ Rights Committee of Saitama Bar Association.
