Did you not appealed the matter which got dismissed if not you go for an appeal first to get the divorce. Until you get the divorce then you cannot marry again , try to go for negotiations with your wife for any permanent alimony.

Since you are not officially divorced yet, you need to wait for the divorce orders to be issued by the court.
without divorce orders, you cannot marry the second time as it is a criminal offence to get married the second time when the first marriage is subsisting.
