i need to get a copy of my ex-wife's kosekitohn, to prove i'm divorced. i've been told before that if your name is on the koseki regardless of circumstance, you have a right to it, even if your divorced.
i'm assuming that the town hall officers will fobb me off and tell me some crap despite what i've read/been told all ready and not give me the koseki, so can someone give me a load of sentaces in japanese which will make things a run a bit smoother and maybe a link to webpage in japanese which confirms the above info which i could print and out and be like:
"oh don't pull that ____ on me, here a piece of A4 paper with a some legal ____ printed on it, ha! Give me the koseki ____ head!"
