Divorce is not a sin, so it doesn't get you excommunicated. Attempting to remarry after a divorce is a serious sin and gets people excommunicated unless they get a Church annulment first.
However, a Catholic who got divorced could have gotten a lot of very unpleasant social interactions from Catholics who mistakenly thought that divorce itself was the sin, rather than that remarrying after a divorce without getting a Church annulment first would be the sin.
