Is the standard absolute?

The table is used as a base for the mediation process. In particular, mediators demand the submission of materials such as salary details that are required to make a determination based on this form. Normally, when these materials are submitted, the amount according to the table is indicated as an opinion at the mediation session. There are times when the parties are told that even if it is adjudicated the result will be the same. However, the standard is not absolute, and is not used to decide every case. Each case has its own various circumstances.
Special circumstances must be carefully described to an attorney, who will emphasize them in procedures of Japanese family court. For example, the table uses public school tuition as a standard, but a child attending a private school or who is expected to attend a private school may receive more money if that fact is emphasized.
