Stateless Foreigners Married
Description The existence of Stateless in the territory of Indonesia  is quite  widely  spread  in  various  regions. Some  of    them  are    refugees  and  foreigners who do not  have an identity  and  do not  get  recognition from the  embassies  of their home countries.  Some  of  them,stateless  live   inside  rudenim  and  outside  rudenim  as  stipulated  in the laws and regulations.  Stateless who  live a life outside rudenim  not  infrequently  meets  indonesian citizens and they get  married. Marriages   performed  by  Indonesian  citizens with people who do not  have  citizenship  are  questioned  because  of the unfulfillment  of the  conditions  for the marriage. There  are no  specific  regulations  governing   this so there is a legal  vacuum  related to  this marriage. Therefore, this research  was  conducted  with  normative  studies with  primarylegal material obtained  from laws and regulations such as the 1945 Constitution,  Law  No. 1 of 1974   on   Marriage,  Law  No.  12 of 2006  on  Citizenship,  and  the Convention  Act  of 1951. The conclusion  of  this study  is  that the marriage  conducted is invalid because it is  not  in accordance  with the Marriage Act, the status  of stateless person  citizenship is not  changed  to Indonesian citizen,  but the citizenship status  of  the  child born  can become an Indonesian citizen.
