empowering individuals

Around the world through AI technology as a self service tool
to find and reconnect with their families.

FMP has created a simple yet effective way for individuals to safely locate and reunite with their families.

Step 1

Individuals input information of a individual and/or of their family members on our secure and confidential website.

Step 2

Upon submission, our website then searches all entries for a match.

Step 3

Once a potential link to his/her family is found, a notification is made, our platform gives an output — ultimately paving the way for the families to reunite.

We believe that no child should have to experience parental child abduction.

Children who grow up in single-parent homes or who are abducted by one of their parents struggle with a number of socio-economic and psychological issues. They are at-risk for emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. They are more likely to suffer from poverty, limiting their access to quality education and health services. Research shows that children and adults who’ve suffered from child parental abduction also experience psychological issues and generational trauma as they’re robbed of half of their identity — sometimes losing an entire culture, language, and the support of extended family.

Children Affected Globally

Find My Parent is committed to raising awareness globally on the following issues: kidnapping, child abuse, parental child abduction, parental alienation and human trafficking.

While the database is in English, Spanish, Danish and Japanese currently, our team is working hard to expand our global reach by translating the website and database so it’s available in 20 of the most commonly spoken languages. We work hand-in-hand with our partners around the world advocating for effective policy changes to ensure that each and every missing child is reunited with their families as quickly as possible.

Our Founder's Story

Founder and CEO, Enrique Gutierrez knows the pain of children and parents being separated. Getting divorced in Japan resulted in Enrique having his beautiful daughter, Meline, kidnapped from him. Due to the sole custody laws and zero enforcement of visitation rights, Enrique has not seen nor heard from his daughter or ex-wife for the past two years. Even worse, Meline has no way to look for Enrique. Enrique realized that his daughter should have the ability to try to reach out to him and this prompted Enrique to found Find My Parent.

Enrique’s story is not unique in Japan - there are over 3 million similar cases in Japan alone. Children and parents are routinely separated at borders, such as that of the United States and Mexico, with no way for children and parents to find each other again. Incidences of parental child abduction have grown as the world becomes more connected and international marriages become more common. A large number of children are also abducted by a parent domestically - many of these cases are never even reported.

実録公開! 有名離婚弁護士”子の連れ去り指示”の現場

2021年10月10日 本会は、離婚を考えているある女性が、有名な悪徳離婚弁護士に相談に訪れた際のやり取りを、本サイト読者の方からの情報提供により入手しました。その内容を、以下の通り公開します。 Contents 1. 「別居すれば婚姻費用がもらえるよ」 2. 「子供を連れて黙って家を出るんだよ」 3. 「会えないのにお金出す馬鹿いる?」 4. 「どうして離婚したいのかをまだ聞いてない」 5. 「急いで別居、離婚までは長く」 6. 「賢い奥さんは別居するだけであとはほっとく」 7. 「子供をダシにして生きなきゃダメ」 8. 「調停の前は面会交流をブロックできない」 9. 「養育費の10%を5年分いただきます」 10. 「わざと階段から転げてみるとか」 「別居すれば婚姻費用がもらえるよ」 (20XX年X月X日、有名悪徳離婚弁護士の事務所にて) 弁護士:(相談者が書いた質問表を見ながら)離婚した後は、どういうふうにしていこうと?(※太字は弁護士の発言。以下同) 相談者:ちょっと、まだ……。(※細字は相談者の発言。以下同じ) 今住んでるところは賃貸? 賃貸です。 結婚期間が短いから、分けるものが何もないっていう離婚だよ。 そう思ってます。 離婚するときには、子供とお金に関することを決めるんだけど、子供の養育費はもらえます。これは裁判所で、お互いの年収でほぼ機械的に算出されるから。あなたの場合、慰謝料はないし、年金分割も微々たるもの。 もし離婚するってなったら、親権は私が取りたいんですけど。 彼、あんまり子育てしてないんじゃない? 仕事から帰ってくるのが遅くて。帰ると子供に構ってはくれるんですけど。 私だって家に帰ったら犬の相手はする。それとおんなじことじゃないか。 うーん。 別居してもすぐに離婚はできない。でも離婚するまで、婚姻費用がもらえるんだよ。彼の年収は全然分からないの? わからないんです。 たとえば、彼が500万円でこっちが170万円くらいだとすると、月8万円くらいはもらえる。
