When is my divorce “final?”

The divorce is “final” on the day the Decree of Divorce is filed by the Clerk of the Court, if there is no appeal. This is usually on the same day the Decree is signed by the judge. In the event any order included in the Decree of Divorce is appealed, the divorce is not final until the appeal is decided.

You may not marry anyone except your spouse for thirty days after the divorce becomes “final” unless both agree to waive their right to appeal.
