My fiance is a Filipina who was married to Japanese man and divorced 10 yrs ago. She is Permenent Resident and has her card. The US Embassy wants her Original Family Register (Koseki-Tohon) showing birth of her children which was in Japan near Chiba. She lives in Yokosuka. We have Koseki showing divorce. How does she get one showing birth of her 2 children who are both over 21 yrs old? Time is running down and cannot find anything online on how to obtain this. Arigoto Gazaimasu!

She needs to go to the city hall in the town where her husband has his registration. I find it very odd that she wouldn't know how to get one.

She'll be able to divorce you a lot quicker than her last husband. Japan has a longer requirement for permanent residency.
