Consequences of a divorce

At the hearing of your divorce petition, if the judge is satisfied that you have legal ground for divorce, he/she will grants a Decree Nisi which will be made absolute after a certain period usually in three (3) months.

The Decree Nisi will set out the terms and conditions of the divorce

During this three-month period;
  1. you cannot re-marry; and or
  2. either party can still show cause why the marriage should not be dissolved

At the end of the three-month or such period as the Court orders, if no such cause is shown, the Decree Nisi is made absolute and your marriage is hereby legally dissolved and you are free to remarry if you so desire.
