@Mrs.Bitt:  Why would you receive “fake” divorce papers? You should be able to search the official record at your local courthouse.

Do the papers read Final Decree or something to that effect. If you are nervous about it I second checking online court records.

I don’t know anything about divorce papers but why would they be dated December 19, 2012 when that date hasn’t happened yet? Once a divorce is granted why would it take so long for it to go through? But again I don’t know anything about divorcing.

When did he go to court to get divorced?  It depends on state laws.  Some states grant the divorce the day you finalize everything in court, but it’s not final for a few months.  I would imagine that it’s final 6 months after the divorce.  You can Google divorce laws for the state where he got divorced.

A document title Divorce Decree is a final document once signed by all parties and filed at the courthouse. A Separation Agreement or something to that effect is not a final divorce document. 

We needed my FI’s divorce papers in order for us to get married. I simply walked into the courthouse asked the clerk for the case number, sat down at one of their many computers punched in the case # and paid 3 bucks for a printed copy. 

It said Decree of Divorce and was signed by both parties as well as a judge or court clerk of some kind. There were dates of the signatures but no “final” date. It is still very much final and has been for over 12 years.
