There Is No Waiting-Period for Remarriage under Korean Family Law

Recently we got a question regarding the s0-called “waiting-period” of remarriage under Korean family law.  There is no such a thing like “waiting-period” which prohibits a divorced person to remarry within certain period.  Actually there had been a clause of waiting period in Korean Civil Code, but the clause was abolished in 2005.  So if you’re divorced by the Korean family, then you can remarry at any time you want with no legal hindrances.

If you have any question about divorcing in Korea or any other family law related issues, please visit our Legal Consultation center or send your inquiry email directly to  Our Korean licensed lawyers, not a U.S. lawyer residing in Korea, will answer your inquiry.
