Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – In the video on Melaney Ricardo’s Youtube account, senior actress Ayu Azhari tells about the first time she met Mike Tramp, vocalist of the legendary band White Lion who eventually became her husband.
Melaney asked Ayu what the story was until she could meet Mike Tramp, and Ayu said that the meeting took place at a five-star hotel in Jakarta at dinner.
At that time, White Lion was indeed holding a concert and finally they were able to meet.
Long story short, because there was a match, they married in 2003 in a series and as a result the marriage was made official four years later.
As is known, Ayu herself has been married several times and from previous marriages, Ayu also has six children. One of Ayu’s ex-husbands is also not an Indonesian citizen.
When in one family there are several children born to different parents, what are the terms of inheritance in terms of the Inheritance Law of the Civil Code? Here’s the review.
Children are definitely entitled to property with their father and mother
As stated in Article 832 of the Civil Code, those who have blood relations between the heirs, except for the husband or wife of the heir.
For example, A married a woman named B and was blessed with a child, namely C. A few years later, A divorced B, and A married a woman named D and was blessed with child E.
In this case, E is entitled to the inheritance of his mother’s father, namely A and D. However, especially for inheritance originating from A, he must share it with C.
Meanwhile, in the context of A and D’s marriage, C is clearly categorized as a stepchild who is not related by blood to D. Therefore, C is not entitled to any inheritance originating from D’s inheritance, nor D’s assets which were divided after D died. world.
But, what if the father is a foreign national?
As is well known, Mike Tramp is not an Indonesian citizen and Ayu’s ex-husband, Teemu Yusuf Ibrahim, is also a Finnish citizen. So what is the inheritance process like for children from mixed marriages?
Reporting from Online Law, when an Indonesian citizen marries a foreigner, there will be additional laws that need to be considered, especially in terms of inheritance.
In Article 57 of Law No. 1 of 1974 concerning Marriage, it is stated that mixed marriage is a marriage between two people who are subject to different laws due to differences in nationality and one of the parties is an Indonesian citizen.
When the deceased is a foreigner who is married to an Indonesian citizen, the inheritance law used for this process is the inheritance law of the foreigner’s country.
The assets that are quite complicated to divide are immovable assets, such as property assets.
The solution for this mixed marriage is actually a prenuptial agreement related to asset ownership, because it will be closely related to the inheritance process later. If both partners do not have this agreement, then they can consider making a postnuptial agreement.
In addition, it is also important for the testator to make a will in accordance with statutory regulations.
