What is the name of your state? Texas (Divorce decree from South Carolina)
I received the "Final Decree" in the mail back in Feb 2005 from the ex-wifes lawyer in South Carolina. I paid the court fees as the order required on 1 April 2005. I got married again in Texas on 10 June 2005.
Today, I got a letter from my exwife stating that the divorce is not final because the document was never "Recorded" and that the terms of the separation agreement are still in force. She does not know I remarried.
Am I in a big mess? I have found case law this afternoon regarding the fact that a divorce is legal at the time of the judge issuing it. So what is going on here?
