Divorce and remarry in Indonesia

I have a KITAP in Indonesia sponsored by my wife, Just wondering if we divorced and i marry another Indonesian, My Kitap will be canceled? or the my could canceled it anytime? can i live in Indonesia until it gets expired?

Thanks

Your KITAP is issued with your wife as a sponsor and is only legal whilst you're still married.
The moment you divorce, your sponsor has gone, so your KITAP is invalid.
You can restart the process with your new wife, but that means starting as you did before, aiming at KITAS until you've been married for two years.
You'll have no immigration status upon divorce, so you'll have to leave the country (Exit permit when you surrender your KITAP) and re-enter on a new temporary visa until you remarry.

Strong advice - Follow the rules and keep immigration up to date with anything you do. If so, you'll find them helpful; if not, you could find yourself behind bars.
