Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
Unless the Decree Absolute has been granted then you are indeed still married to your ex and you will need to apply for it now if your ex has not done so.

Hi
Your starting point is to check that there has not been a Decree Absolute using the form here

If there has not been then you need to apply for it using the form here

This will have to be supported by a statement confirming that you did not resume cohabitation and there have been no further children.
