The Tokyo Family Court has adopted a gradual progress model for distribution of the inheritated property.
(For details, see Hitoshi Mimori Tokyo Family Court Committee Report “Efforts to Properly and Quickly Resolve the distribution of inheritated property Case”)
The gradual progress model is divideed into following five stages.
The Tokyo Family Court Conciliation Process shall take this gradual progress model,so it is very important to take these steps into consideration.
The family court explains this model in a video in the waiting room during mediation.
Also,5th division of the Tokyo Family Court,special body of distribution of inheritated propert,publishes instructions based on this gradual progress model. I would like to expain these steps in the linked pages.
