Does anyone know what the marriage requirements are on E. Timor? Same as in Indonesia?

Boyfriend "married" Indonesian girl in E. Timor in Oct 2002 while working there. Shortly thereafter his work transfered him to another country. When that was finished in 2004, he returned to US and she to Bali that has been 8 years ago. She supposedly told him that marriage wasn't legal. At least to my understanding of Indonesia requirements, they may not be married but question is are the laws the same in E. Timor and in Indonesia? Can he file for divorce here in US?

    There is no record of marriage laws online for East Timor. The best thing to do would be to contact the East Timor embassy to check the marriage validity.
