It is against the law to remarry before a divorce becomes final. A delay of approximately 3 months occurs between the date of filing for divorce and the date of the divorce hearing. A divorce becomes final when the court issues a divorce order at the expiration of one month after the divorce hearing.
Marriage celebrants require the production of a divorce order one month prior to the intended marriage date if an intended party to the marriage has previously been married. We advise that it is best to allow for at least two months after the date of a divorce hearing before confirming celebrations for a new marriage to take place.Back to FAQ
