Final Divorce Decree
Tennessee law allows you to remarry as soon as you are absolutely divorced. However, a divorce can be appealed up until 30 days after the of the date of the final hearing. Your spouse could be unhappy with the property division, child custody arrangements -- or the fact of the divorce itself. If your spouse appeals, you are still married because no final judgment has been entered in your case, so you're not free to marry again until the appeal is decided or resolved.
