Am I legally divorced? 1 Answers as of July 18, 2011My ex's attorney agreed to file last divorce paper N.O.I. This was last year and I am not divorced yet? Since the document has not been filed does that mean we are still married? My ex is also saying he won a court case and got a lot of money.. does that mean I am entitled to what he won?

Your divorce is not final until the court issues an order granting the divorce, and the order is issued either by your attorney or the attorney for your ex. You should have your attorney contact your ex's attorney to get a status on the case. Regarding the court award to your ex in an unrelated case, you should also check your settlement agreement as you may have waived any rights to this money.
