Customer Question
My wife and I...

My wife and I were granted a divorce here in Florida where I live. She lived in Ohio and recently passed away. I initiated the divorce and it was granted here in Palm Beach county. I looked at final decree and her signature is not on it. My mortgage lender is telling me that she should have signed it who's right?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I live in Florida and she lived in Ohio throughout divorce.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

I am sorry to hear of your loss;

No, the judge is the one that needs to sign the order for it to have legal effect, not the parties; for a samle form please see:
