Guardianship of a Child

Tuesday, 13 February 2018 09:43

Guardianship of a chid in Indonesia is applicable when the marriage of the parents is still intact. It is transferable to a certain parties, but not to a company. It seems a simple thing, but there’s far more to it than that. 

Guardianship may be transferable to grand father, grand mother, or other family members within four vertical degrees. The surviving spouse, by law, is the guardian of his/her child. This happens automatically. By law, being a father or a mother, you can't say no for being a guardian of a child. This is a compulsory guardianship. 

As a parent, you may appoint a guardian for your child. This may only happen if you can't perform your job as a parent, for example due to your work commitment overseas. Therefore, you may be released as the holder of your child's guardianship. But, this is only temporary, and your authority may be reinstated according to your inquiry. Nevertheless, someone may reject your guardianship request. Therefore, you need to make sure he/she is available to entertain your request.
