Thank you for that clarification--I was just about to ask how I might help. Do you mind holding on for a few moments so I can pull the case up and see the status for myself?
Thanks. This will be just a few moments.
Thanks for your patience. I went to the Kern County Superior Court's website to view the case history and status for this matter--although your information appeared to be complete, I needed to verify that no additional information had been left out. Based on the information provided through the website located at http://www.kern.courts.ca.gov/home.aspx?p=FamilySearchCI&p1=Left and based on the information you provided, the marriage dissolved, effective December 19, 2012.
I suppose it's technically possible that they went out and remarried one another after December 19, 2012, but the divorce was finalized on December 19, 2012.
You will need a copy of the judgment of dissolution itself. It is a public record, but it would need to be obtained from the court itself, so someone would need to physically go to the courthouse and ask them to extract this particular case from their archives, and then make a copy of the judgment.
It's my pleasure. Did you have any other question?
Well, let me know if further clarification is needed, and please feel free to leave a rating once you are finished (I work for ratings). Thanks.
