The advantage of drafting a will in Japan is that the drafter can choose who to give his or her assets to and in what amounts. However, there are limits on how freely property can be distributed after death in Japan. Japanese law dictates that, regardless of what is stated in a will, spouses and children are entitled to part of the decedent’s estate. This minimum is set by law and can be claimed by spouses and children upon request to the court.
In Japan, bankruptcy petitions can be brought by a variety of parties. The most common situation is for the debtor to file for bankruptcy personally as a way to escape payment, but this does not always happen. When a debtor refuses to file bankruptcy, it is often left to the creditor to file for bankruptcy on behalf of the debtor and submit evidence of unpaid debt as proof that the debtor can no longer make payments on debts.
