I would be happy to answer your question. While I am permitted to provide you with legal information, I am prohibited by and various state bar associations from giving legal advice, representing you, or entering into an attorney-client relationship through this open forum. Do you accept these terms? Please answer yes or no to continue.

Thank you.

Thank you. Yes. Typically, this means that the court has entered a judgment of divorce and the parties are no longer married. It is usually best to request a copy of the order from the clerk of the court though in order to read the actual language of the order.
