Congratulations on achieving a settlement with your spouse. Unfortunately, you won’t be legally divorced until the judge signs the judgment of divorce, which you will receive in the mail.
Depending on your location and a number of factors beyond your control, it may be several months before you receive it.
Once you do have it, you are free to remarry, change your name back to what it was prior to your marriage, and establish your life as you see fit as an entirely independent person.
But first, you have to wait. In the meantime, know that you are through the worst of it.
If your divorce seems to be dragging on, call the Brooklyn divorce attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino at 718-725-9601.
We can help you find out the status of your divorce judgment and ensure that everything is on track.
