Divorce final judgement
A divorce final judgment is a court order that officially terminates a marriage. It sets forth the terms and conditions of the divorce, including property division, spousal support, child custody, and child support.
Once the final judgment is issued, the divorce is final, and both parties are bound by its terms. The final judgment may be reached through a trial, where a judge makes a decision on disputed issues, or through an uncontested divorce, where the parties have agreed to the terms of the divorce and submitted their agreement to the court for approval.
The final judgment is a critical document in the divorce process, as it sets forth the legal rights and obligations of the parties going forward. It is important that both parties carefully review the final judgment before it is entered by the court to ensure that it accurately reflects their agreement or the judge's decision.
If there are issues with the final judgment, such as errors or omissions, it may be possible to file a motion to modify or amend the judgment. However, these motions are generally only granted in limited circumstances, such as in cases of fraud, mistake, or newly discovered evidence.
