How Soon Can I Remarry After My Divorce?

A New Relationship

After a difficult divorce, it can be very easy to want to fall in love again and find the right person. When you find someone and start to fall for them, your next question might be when you can marry them and start a new life together. We have the answer for you.

No Official Waiting Period

Colorado does not have an official period that dictates how long you must wait to get married again after your divorce is finalized. However, as is the case in most states, you do have to wait until your divorce is complete before you can get married again.

While Colorado has no law preventing you from seeing someone during your divorce, keep in mind that you are still married until your decree of divorce is signed and completed. Dating during divorce can be dangerous.

Remarrying and Spousal Maintenance

However, if you are receiving maintenance payments and are looking at getting remarried, you should be aware that your payments may change. Colorado divorces may include spousal maintenance payments in which the spouse earning the higher income pays the lower-earning spouse a set amount for a set period of time. Unless agreed upon otherwise in the settlement, spousal maintenance payments end when you remarry.

Before you marry someone else after your divorce, it is important to take a look at your overall financial situation and determine if remarrying will put you in a better position compared to staying single and receiving maintenance payments.
