Massachusetts Divorce Waiting Periods

During divorce, states may have divorce waiting periods before and after a couple files for divorce to determine whether reconciliation is possible. In Massachusetts, there isn’t a waiting period before filing for divorce. As long as the couple meets the Massachusetts residency requirement, it’s possible to file for divorce at any time. The Massachusetts waiting period after filing for divorce is 90 days after the divorce order is entered in the divorce court before the divorce becomes final.
Some states require either or both spouses recognize a remarriage waiting period after the divorce is finalized. In Massachusetts, neither spouse is required to wait before remarrying, as long as the divorce is final.
