Remarriage Waiting Period After Divorce is Final

A majority of the states do not have a mandatory waiting periods to remarry once a divorce is final, but some do and some states permit judges to use his or her discretion on a case-by-case basis. If there is a statutory waiting period to remarry, it typically starts from the date the final judgment or decree of divorce is signed by the judge. This date is what is referring to as your "Date of Divorce". Remarriage waiting periods are put in place to give spouses ample time to appeal a divorce judgment if they choose to do so. Having no statutory waiting period does not mean you are not permitting to appeal a final judgment or decree.
