There is a separation for a couple after a divorce during which the husband and wife can remain without a new marriage contract, and she is prohibited from remarriage. This period lasts for the span of three menstrual cycles, three months, or until the end of pregnancy. Surah Talaq which stipulates that the divorce, also encourages witnesses to be present at the end of the separation period to confirm that the couple has chosen not to stay to gether.
