Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, how are you today?
My name is ***** ***** I am going to see if I can assist you with your query. Let me just read your first post. I may need to ask you additional questions after I have read your initial post.
My condolences for the loss of your brother.
If you attach a copy of the Decree document you have, I should be able to tell you if it is the final decree.
That is definitely the Decree Absolute. The divorce was made final in April 2021.
However, it may not be the end of the matter, as there is normally a financial order too, to close off all claims from either party. Normally that is finalised before the DA is pronounced, but sometimes couples do not do so at the time, intending to settle later, so that is something you will need to find out when settling his estate as his ex wife, if there was no financial settlement, may have a claim.
You're very welcome.
Can I clarify anything for you?
All the best.
