About this thing, I was wondering about the legality of postnup agreements.This is really important, Magnum. If she wants to own property in Indonesia, you need a prenuptial agreement. If she stands to inherit property here she will need it. It is easier and potentially cheaper to get this before marriage if you guys can do it. Otherwise you will have to go through a process to get a retroactive prenuptial made, which in the case of my ex and I involved a judge and was not free or convenient.
Iam already married for 11 years now and in the past no one told us about this prenup thing. Only years later we found out about it. We didn't really give it much attention since we were living in germany back then. A lot of things happened and we moved to Indonesia in 2019, the first thing we did was a postnup cause my wife wanted to buy a house and we wanted to make sure everything will be correct for the future. So far so good.
Still, several people (mostly notaris) told us the law for postnuptial agreements isn't really 100% approved of yet by the government.
Does anyone know something about it? It makes me wonder, especially in Indonesia, if in the end you really can rely on a postnup or not when shit hits the fan.
