Remarriage

Post by magicamel » Mon Jul 03, 2017 7:02 pm

I understand that in Finland there is a "6-month" waiting period before someone can get remarried after a divorce. Could anyone please tell me if that 6 months of waiting starts after the first initial divorce papers are filed or after the 6-month "cooling down" seperation period has concluded.

Thank you!

File your intent to divorce.
Wait the 6 month period.
Sign and file the paper they send you after the 6 months is up.
Wait 2-4 weeks, or so.
Paper arrives in the post telling you that you are free to remarry.
