When Can I Remarry?


When Can I Remarry?

In Idaho, there is a statutory 6 month waiting period before you are eligible for a dissolution proceeding. You may NOT remarry until a judgment of dissolution is obtained which requires either a trial or settlement.

The six month waiting period begins on the date the respondent was served with the appropriate legal documents and not from the date of filing.

If the case can not be settled and you wish to be considered legally single for the purpose of remarrying or filing taxes as single, you can ask your attorney to apply for a “Bifurcation.” This is where the court grants your divorce, but reserves jurisdiction over all other issues for future determination. In some cases the court will grant a bifurcation subject to certain conditions.
