Whether or not you are considering remarrying after your divorce in Arizona, it is important to understand your rights and options. In Arizona, you are able to remarry at any time after your divorce is finalized. You should check with your attorney to determine exactly when yours will be completed. The divorce is not final until it has been signed by the judge in your case. If you have reached a settlement or agreement, have had your trial, or a written settlement has been submitted to the court, you are not yet divorced. The decree has to be signed by the court. If you remarry before it is signed, your new marriage is not valid.
Considering whether to marry again is an important decision. You now understand how difficult divorce can be and may be hesitant to risk having to go through another one. It is usually a good idea to give yourself some time and space before getting married again. If you meet the right person, you can take the time get to know each other and possibly cohabitate.
If remarriage is in the cards for your, a prenuptial or premarital agreement is something you should consider. The agreement will determine how your assets and debts would be divided if the marriage is not successful. The process of creating the agreement is also an excellent way to talk about money and plan how you will manage it during your new marriage.
If you are a parent, remarrying can be difficult for your children, but it can also bring a new and satisfying relationship into their lives. Allowing your children the time to get to know your new partner and form a bond is important.
