Marrying one's ex-husband

Q: I was once married for 10 years and my husband and I got divorced. After getting divorced I met someone who promised to marry me and even had a baby, however he did not marry me or support his child. Is it permissable for me to marry my first husband again now? 

A: If it was just one divorce issued by the husband you may remarry him.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
