You cannot remarry until the nisi period is complete. The nisi period is the time between when the court enters your divorce judgment and the divorce becomes final by operation of the law.
A “1A” divorce is not final until 120 days from the date of the judgment.
A “1B” divorce is not final until 90 days from the date of the hearing if a judgment is entered.
