特定非営利活動法人 JFCネットワーク




2024年2月16日、マリガヤハウスのオンライン基本オリエンテーションを実施し、4人の母親と3人のJFCの計5人が参加しました。※English is below.







On February 16, 2024, Maligaya House conducted an online basic orientation which was attended by a total of five (5) participants, four (4) mothers and three (3) JFCs.
Four of them were cases of loss of Japanese nationality. In these cases, the parents were married in the Philippines and the children were afterward born in the Philippines, but the children lost their Japanese nationality because they did not report the birth of their children to the Japanese embassy or consulate in the Philippines within three months after the birth. In order to obtain Japanese nationality again, children who have lost their nationality must go to Japan and submit necessary documents before they turn 18 years old.

One case involved a request for recognition, child support, and acquisition of Japanese nationality.

The other case involved an adult JFC seeking recognition from his Japanese father.

Maligaya House conducts an online basic orientation once a month. Attendance at the orientation is required in order to accept the case.

Currently, many people are waiting to attend the orientation. Priority will be given to those with high priority, so please let them know at the time of inquiry, especially if the case is a Japanese father who has died, the child is 16-17 years old, or if you think the case is otherwise urgent.
