Remarrying After an Absolute Divorce in Maryland
Are you remarrying after an absolute divorce?
You did it. You finally got divorced! Even better, you’ve found the second love of your life and want to get married, again. Congrats!
How long should you wait before remarrying after an absolute divorce?
When the court enters the judgment of absolute divorce you can remarry immediately. However, the date the court’s order is entered and the date you go to court to testify to be divorced may be two different dates. To be safe, you should wait until you receive the court’s judgment in the mail.
But wait, perhaps you should wait even longer before you consider remarrying before an absolute divorce. A party to an absolute divorce has the right to appeal the court’s decision.
Additionally, a party to an absolute divorce case has 30 days to appeal the court’s judgment. If the party is successful on appeal, then the court’s judgment can be reversed! You might not actually be divorced then.
So, it’s always a good idea to wait 30 days after the court’s entry of the judgment of absolute divorce to ensure that no one files an appeal before you remarry.
