  1. Once a judgment for absolute divorce is entered by the court, a party is granted an absolute divorce. The marriage bonds are immediately severed, and the parties are free to remarry. I generally suggest that parties not remarry for 30 days so that the period for appeal of the judgment has run. It could be embarassing if the other party appealed the judgment of absolute divorce after the new marriage. You certainly want to avoid a possible charge of bigamy!
