Revert getting married after separating from her Christian husband

Q: One of my colleagues converted to Islam but she is married to a Christian, and her husband did not agree to convert. So since her husband did not agree to convert, after how many months is she able to get married again to a Muslim man?

A: She must break up immediately. She may marry after experiencing 3 haidh. The more cautious view is that she should wait in total for 6 haidh.

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