In this episode of You're Double Podcast, we talk to Deanielle Dawra, who is the co founder and Director of Advocacy for Find My Parent.

As a mother of two kids, she understand the love that a parent have for his or her kids and through find my parent, she makes sure that the every child around the world have access to both his or her parents. In addition to the latest updates from Find My Parent, we also discuss about the recent petition to demand default joint custody in Japan.

I would like to remind everyone that we recently launched a petition targeted at the Japanese government to stand up for the 3million kids who have been trafficked since 1991, legally with the help of single custody laws in Japan. Japan does not recognise joint custody. laws as the lawyers and judges profit from it and receive up to 30% of child support payments until the child reaches 20 years of age!

While it’s a gain for the lawyers and judges, this is a loss-loss situation for the children and parents affected by the single custody law.Winning this campaign depends on our ability to call on thousands of supporters like you. Your signature(support) is all that we need. Please support our petition and tell the International Organizations and the government to pressure Japan to adopt a joint custody law. You can find the petition at
