How long do I have to wait after I have been divorced to remarry?

You will need to wait before your divorce is final before you can remarry. A divorce is finalised one month, and a day after being made final in court, and the entire process usually takes around three to four months from start to finish. It is important to leave sufficient time between applying for a divorce and arranging  a further marriage to ensure that you do not commit bigamy.
