• Divorce

Alimony amount is decided for the divorce after contesting the case for 4 years by both parties in front of judge. Now both party advocates are asked by the judge to prepare papers. My questions are:
1. does that mean it will no longer be a contested divorce and will become mutual consent divorce.
2. Once the papers are ready, how many days are given to submit the alimony amount  (in lump sum)
3. After ho many days will the divorce decree be given.
4. Can both the parties then remarry and if yes after how many days?

1. The divorce will still be a contested one and not my mutual consent.

2. Normally if the alimony amount is large, the court gives reasonable time to deposit the amount. Sometimes a liberty is given to deposit the amount in installments. The reasonable time may run into 6 months or so. The lawyer can request the court after the amount is settled to get some reasonable time for depositing the same.

3. This depends on the next date of hearing. Normally the divorce decree is give immediately after finalization of proceedings.

4. The parties can remarry on the very next day of getting the divorce decree.
