Second marriage after the divorce

Dear experts

I very recently got divorced from my wife with mutual agrrement under section 13 B (of course I had to fight the 498 a before that) and proivided the divorce decree.

Just wanted to know when I can remarry after the date of the divorce? Is the law different for different states? I am from Uttar Pradesh.


Many thanks

Many thanks for replying...however some says 90 days and some very next day got me confused...other than my ex-wife lawyer said one year!!! Please forgive my is the background of mutually agreed divorce...


My ex-wife first filed FIR against me and my family under 498a and 3/4 dowry act....and then in two months after mediations she withdrew the complaints with one time financial agreement including her "Stree Dhan" and jewelries etc...the family court gave us 6 months reconciliation time and sent us back for second mediation and asked us to come back 2 more months later...then finally the divorce application accepted and announced in a Lok Adalat 18 days later.


Many thanks again for your patience.
