Even though you’re just barely separated from your ex, over the long term, you may want to consider getting remarried or at least re-partnering. What can you do now to pave the way for that possibility? What problems could ensue, legally speaking, and otherwise?
Most people wait years (or at least months) after getting divorced before repartnering. But some strive to remarry as quickly as possible after a separation. For instance, maybe you’ve been carrying on an affair with a client for 8 years; now that you’re finally getting divorced, you want to move in with this woman as quickly as possible and make her your new wife.
Or maybe you met someone from overseas, and you want to get married rapidly to allow him or her to stay in the United States. Depending on your circumstances, you may have to wait months or longer to get remarried, even if your current spouse agrees to an uncontested divorce. Even if you wait the requisite amount of time, getting remarried after a divorce can open up a diverse legal “can of worms” that could have profound consequences for your child custody and visitation arrangement, alimony and child support arrangement, tax situation and immigration status.
