New York law does not impose a waiting period following a divorce, so as soon as you have your divorce judgment in hand, you are eligible to re-marry in Queens.
For some people, this was the point of the divorce, and there may be no reason to wait. For others, a new relationship may have bloomed during your divorce, and in that case, there are elements of your divorce that may require careful consideration.
If you were awarded spousal maintenance, re-marriage will end those payments.
Your financial situation with your new fiance may mean that waiting to re-marry (or cohabitate) should wait until you’ve had time to get back on your feet.
Money problems are a huge source of stress in any relationship, so talking these issues through with your fiance may save you a lot of struggle in the future.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you understand the ramifications of your divorce settlement and the implications of a new marriage.
