International Social Service Japan are useless

International Social Service Japan suddenly say they can't do what they advertise they can do:-

From their web-site:-

"International marriage is increasing and with it numerous problems. Taking the legal codes and procedures of the country involved into account, we provide assistance in such areas as marriage and divorce procedures, parental authority over children, visitation rights, expenses for raising children, problems receiving compensation for damages, and the search for missing family members. In addition, we provide counseling to Japanese residents of foreign nationality, for example, who are married to Japanese nationals"

Their e-mail reply to me:-

Dear Mr. Lang,

We have received your email dated on September 15, 2003. We are very sorry that we could not reply to you until today (20th November 2003).

As we had already informed you on our February 26, 2003 email, if the court has already involved, you may want to seek a legal help from a lawyer.

Sincerely,

International Social Service Japan

My reply to this e-mail:-

Dear Sir/Madam,

Re: divorce issues - contact/visitation rights.

You wrote:-

" if the court has already involved"

You mean the Family Court? They do not reply to my registered mails. The law courts are not involved.

I don't understand your role regarding divorce issues. On your website you state:-

"International marriage is increasing and with it numerous problems. Taking the legal codes and procedures of the country involved into account, we provide assistance in such areas as marriage and divorce procedures, parental authority over children, visitation rights, expenses for raising children, problems receiving compensation for damages, and the search for missing family members. In addition, we provide counseling to Japanese residents of foreign nationality, for example, who are married to Japanese nationals."

I'm asking you directly for help in terms of contact and visitation rights. Why are you referring me to private legal aid when you are offering to help me, according to your website? I suggest you either update your website/company literature or ACTUALLY do what you say you will do:-

"we provide assistance in such areas as marriage and divorce procedures, parental authority over children, visitation rights, expenses for raising children, problems receiving compensation for damages, and the search for missing family members."

Regards,

Andrew Lang

i agree - they are absolutely useless

i had applied to see my daughters but they refused to help them know her father by collaborating with the vindictive mother

ISS is a sham!
