    No it is not duplicate, it is different. Talaq and khula are different. Commented Feb 9, 2016 at 11:28

All Perfect Praise be to Allah.

With regard to the ‘iddah following khula’, the correct scholarly view is that it is one menstrual cycle, as is indicated by the Sunnah.

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas that the wife of Thaabit ibn Qays ended her marriage to her husband by means of khula’ at the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded her to observe an ‘iddah of one menstrual cycle. (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1185; Abu Dawood, 2229. Also narrated by al-Nasaa’i (3497) from the hadeeth of al-Rabee’ bint ‘Afra’. The two hadeeth were both classed as saheeh by Ibn al-Qayyim).

So, you should wait 1 month as iddah period after khula(as of sharai point of view.), and be aware of all judicial procedures of your country to avoid any complexities before re-marriage.
And this waiting period of 1 month will only start when court has declared the khula. Notice is not the condition here, declaration of khula is.

Allah knows best.
