Have Australian Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for your question.
Under Australian law you are obliged to pay child support to the other parent of a child residing outside Australia only if the child is residing in a country that has signed up to reciprocal arrangements. The following link on the Department of Human Services website lists the reciprocating jurisdictions, and as you will see Indonesia is not included:
What this means is that the mother based in Indonesia has no rights under Australian law to pursue you for child support.
However, they may still obtain court orders or similar in Indonesia, and whilst they cannot enforce such in Australia, if you have assets in Indonesia they could perhaps claim them (though I can only advise you on what is possible in Australia so you would need to speak to an Indonesian lawyer about that, if you have assets in Indonesia).
I trust the above assists.
Good luck and please rate my answer.
