by Randy Collins
Jul 21st, 2010

My name is Randy Collins. My son, Keisuke Christian Collins, was illegally abducted by his Japanese mother, Reiko Nakata Greenberg Collins on June 16, 2008.

Father’s Day Demonstration in Tokyo in
Support of the Hague and Joint Custody
Jun 21st, 2010

About 50 left behind parents got together on Father’s Day in Tokyo to raise awareness about Japan’s growing Family Law Problems. Japan doesn’t have a joint custody system like most western countries, so when couples divorce one parent (usually the father) looses parental rights/visitation rights. Sometimes children are abducted by one parent to their home country. Some Japanese parents can’t see their child because he/she is in another country. Some foreign parents can’t see their kids because they have been abducted to Japan and the spouse is refusing all contact. Still other parents live in Japan both far and near [Continue Reading...]
