In a case where a foreign man divorces a Japanese woman, and she will ultimately take custody, but is not able at the moment of divorce, is it possible for the man to take custody temporarily, then hand it over later?
What about paperwork? Would it be best to list the man as the guardian on the divorce forms, and transfer custody later? Are forms for this sort of situation available? Or, is it better to just go ahead and list the final guardian (woman) on the forms, have the ex-husband take care temporarily yet unofficially, then just hand over the children when she's able?
