Divorce Lawyer > File Divorce > Remarriage

Remarriage, You will not believe me, but I get about 20 calls per week asking how long do i have to wait before I can remarry. It’s usually because the fiance doesn’t know they are still married.  For the women shaking their heads you should be made aware that more women call than men.

My best advice for this situation is being honest or simply finding a way to delay the marriage.   Good Luck & hire the best San Antonio Divorce Lawyer you can find!
