Yes – according to the facts you provided, your divorce has been granted. Once a judge makes a ruling regarding your martial status, it becomes legally binding. If your ex was ordered to pay the fees and fails to do so, the court will likely take action against her subject to the laws of your jurisdiction. As always, you should consult with a local family law attorney for legal advice.
