One is bound to wait till the expiry of the limitation period to file an appeal before remarrying. Marriage solemnized within the limitation will be rendered illegal if the appeals court is to finally overturn the decree of the lower court.

Hello,
1) One has to wait for the appeal period to get over to marry again. What if appeal overturns the lower court order. Your marriage week become void/illegal then.

2) You can marry assuming that the other party will not appeal out that the appellate court upholds the verdict.

Can a person marry in again in appeal period when decee of divorce from court?


The limitation for filing an appeal before high court is 90 days but to that of the sub ordinate courts is only 30 days.

Thus if the appeal was preferred within the limitation period then  the he cannot marry again till the disposal of appeal and that can be considered as bigamy too.

If the lower court has given order for divorce can a person marry again in appeal period? Or is the any option to marry again before they appeal in high court..



If the marriage itself during the appeal period, provided the appeal has been preferred within the appellable period, is void and can be termed as bigamy. 

Therefore there is no  question of marrying before the appeal is preferred.
