Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I have a copy of my divorce papers here but I think I need something that finalises the divorce

I am sorry, but I do not think I fully understand your question.

If you got divorced in Cape Town, then what papers from King Williams Town are you referring to?

What divorce papers do you have? Is it the Final Decree of Divorce issued by the Court?

I was divorced in Cape Town South Africa in the southern divorce court and I didn’t get any final divorce or decree nisei papers and I need to know if there is ant further paperwork that I should have received from them.
Lawyer: Freddie Lombard, Attorney replied 7 months ago

What papers do you have? You say you have copies of you "divorce papers". What papers are those?

You should have received a Final Divorce Order from the Court yes.

I hope this answered your question.
