Childsupport out of wedlock
H. Kawarazaki, esq.
I would like to get some basic information on Japanese law relating to
childsupport out of wedlock.
If, for example, a couple has an unexpected pregnancy
and the man does not want the child. But the woman refuses abortion or adoption.
Is the man legally obliged to make childsupport payments?
I will explain Japanese law.
Yes,he is obliged to pay childsupport out of wedlock.
