How long after my divorce goes to court is it final?
I filed for divorce in April and need to get my property settlement in so that a court date can be set. How long after that can I remarry?
It is my understanding that Nebraska has a waiting period, so to speak, once the final divorce decree is issued. That period is six months. In other words, for the purposes of remarriage, a divorce decree dissolves the marital relationship six months after its rendered, or if appealed, upon disposition of appeal, if later. During this six-month period, the parties to the dissolution remain legally married. Remarriage entered into anywhere by either party within such time is void in all jurisdictions. So you should finish up the necessary paperwork as soon as you can in order to have the court date set and the final decree issued by the court. Good luck.
