Having been married for at least three years, you fulfill a main condition for being able to apply for permanent residency. But the process can take many months, and if the "visa" expires before you are granted permanent residency, then you will have to extend it once more.

When you apply, you should ask for the maximum number of years – so 5 years. They might give you 3 years, or you might get 5 years.

Thank you for reply

There is misunderstanding my dear . My contract is part time but in fact I do more than 40 hours per week and I pay tax every year also according to that but I my contract is not full time . I hope you can catch the meaning now

There is no point asking for reassurance here – others can share their experiences, but only the immigration authorities will know the answer.
Having said that, however, working full-time job hours (though the contract is part-time basis), earning full-time income, paying taxes, and having a child, all point to someone whose life is pretty much based in Japan, and is making contribution to the local society. So those are good pointers.

Yet, since you say your current spouse of Japanese resident status expires this year – apply early when you have the papers ready, as the review does take time (ours took 6 months I believe, a few years ago), and see what they say.

Just to add my experience. 11years ago ..

applied for PR at the same time when I renewed my spouse status (upon suggestion from the counter officer). Had my spouse status for 1+1+3, I'm ALTing part time at that time(less than 2 million yen/year), with one child. Wife not working but have passive income. Paid pension and insurance. Got my PR six months later.

So if you think you fit the requirement, then no harm applying. Best do it at the same time when you renewing your spouse status, since both require almost same documentation. But then again things may be stricter compare to before..
