Hi, My Massachusetts divorce nisi was issued December 10, 2001 to be final 90 days fro that date. Does that mean my divorce was final March 10, 2002?
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.

A "nisi" decree is a court order that does not have any force until such time that a particular condition is met, such as the passage of a specified period of time. Once the condition is met, the decree/order becomes absolute and binding.

So, yes, your divorce decree would have been final 90 days from December 10, 2001.
