Hello, my name is Ely. I am here to help you. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice; and (2) my function is to give you honest information and not to tell you what you necessarily wish to hear. There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.

This is a common matter, actually. Normally, the decree is simply entitled "Decree of Divorce."

If you are seeking to amend it, the decree would be called "Amended Decree of Divorce," and that is what the TITLE of the decree would be. It is that simple.
