No, your divorce won’t be final until you’ve received your judgment of divorce from the court and filed it with the clerk’s office in Brooklyn.
Until that happens, you will still be expected to obey the court orders that have governed finances, health insurance, child custody, and other matters that your divorce may have included.
While the trial phase usually marks the end of the active phase of a divorce, it is typically the start of a lengthy wait for the actual end of the marriage.
You can protect yourself from penalties by avoiding common mistakes, such as thinking that your marriage is over and removing your spouse from your health insurance policy.
These costly errors can far outstrip the expense of having an experienced Brooklyn divorce lawyer at your side.
