Perhaps, but only if you have received an annulment (which means your previous marriage was not considered a valid sacrament).
If you receive a civil divorce, but no annulment, then you are still married to the other person in the eyes of the Church and would be committing adultery if you married another.
So for a marriage that meets the requirements of being a sacrament, divorce in the Catholic Church is not possible.
The annulment process is by which a marriage is determined whether or not it is valid, it is not a Catholic divorce process.
