No, you are not able to re-marry simply because you have filed for divorce.
Until you receive your final Judgment of Divorce from the court, you remain legally married to your spouse, and any new marriage can be prosecuted as bigamy under New York criminal laws.
What Can Happen If You Re-Marry Regardless Of Your Divorce Being Finalized
In addition, the new marriage itself will be legally void, which can have big implications should you choose to try to divorce later.
You are only eligible to marry again after the court has officially dissolved your existing marriage, at which point you are legally single and free to conduct yourself as you will.
Don’t fool yourself into making serious mistakes in your love life. Stick with the divorce process, see it to the end, and then move forward knowing that you have the freedom to make whatever choices suit you.
