I got divorced several months ago and the judge ordered my ex to pay the fees to the district clerk, but she has yet to do so. Is my divorce final? Will I have to go through the process again? Or do I have nothing to worry about? The judge did grant the divorce.
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.
