Question #34

I would like to ask, what is the time frame to remarry after you signed the divorce papers? I reside in NYC, and just recently signed my divorce papers in May. I want to remarry right away, but I don’t know how long I have to wait. My Ex and I did an uncontested divorce, but he won’t give me any more info about it, so I would like to know how long I have to wait. Thank you

You must wait until you get a signed copy of the Judgment of Divorce from the Court and have it recorded in the County recorder’s office. The amount of time it takes depends on the backlog the court has in the county where you filed the divorce papers.

If you filed in any of the counties in New York City, it is not uncommon for the wait to be three months or more.

Good luck!
