she can remarry after 3 months

Adv. Biju Gopal (Advocate FAMILY LAWYERS Kottayam Kerala     26 October 2009

There is no provision for appeal on Divorce by Mutual consent.  There is no Counter petitioners on that case.  She can marry on the next day after getting divorce.


Amit ji, after getting divorce decree only one can marry. No time limit after getting divorce decree can marry very next day also.

In mutual divorce there is no time limit, but as per law, remarriage is prescribe only after appeal time, but in mutual divorce there is no appeal, so you may marry after getting divorce decree.

Can marry at any time after divorce, in case of divorce by mutual consent.

Tarun Kalra LL.M, M.B.A (advocate)     28 October 2009

no provision of appeal in case of mutual concent, she can marry while she would get the judgement of the court, its safe to get the certified copy of judgement before marrying, for evidence,

yes it is confirmed that after granting mutual divorce both the parties free to marry on the next very day. it is within the hindu marriage act.

Shantilal Pandya ( Advocate)     15 February 2012

The  appeal period is  30 days   and not one month or  three months  under the Hindu Marriage  Act .

 one  can  marry   immediately after divorce  decee,  except  directed otherwise  by the  decree itself.

Remarriage is  legal   and  bindibg  even if the  decree is  reversed  in appeal , No offence is  committed by remarriage  after  decree, Consent  decree  can be  challanged  only  on the  ground  of  fraud , that too through a  separate  suit  and  not by  appeal.
