Remarriage after Jewish divorce without civil divorce

Question:

Hello,

If a couple divorced under Jewish law (wife received a get at beis din) but still has to wait a year to receive a civil divorce and the man or the woman decide to get married again (to other people) in the meanwhile, will the beis din marry them in a Jewish ceremony or will they have to wait until the civil court finalized the divorce?

Thank you!

Answer:

This is something you will have to ask the beis din if they are willing to do this. As far as Jewish law is concerned the couples is divorced, but as far as the local laws, ask the beis din.
