hello,

i am new here, and i am not looking for a girl or guy...lol
but need some insider advice.

the brother of my son in law, was stationed in japan and fell in love with an indonesien woman, which is married to a man from japan.

now she wants a divorce.

what is the divorce law in indonesia, or since they got married in japan, does the japan law applies?

thanks for your help

If they are married in Japan and living in Japan then Japanese law applies. As far as getting married to an Indonesian I don't see there being an issue. But be aware that if they get married in Indonesia then they MUST have the same religion. No problem if they will marry outside of Indonesia.

I would imagine she and new husband are more traditional and would enjoy the financial rewards a divorce brings them. After all nothing like a nice nest egg to start you on the way!

I think its the Japan applies instead of Indonesian Law if the got the marriage certificate at Japan.

The Indo divorce Law also depent on their own religion. Government law applies, religion law also applies.
