The decree of divorce
If the judge finds that the case has been proved, the plaintiff will be granted an immediate decree of divorce. Approximately two weeks after the divorce has been granted, the plaintiff's attorney will receive a copy of the divorce order, with a copy of the consent paper, if there is one, attached to it. This is an extremely important document, which must be produced if, for example, either the plaintiff or the defendant decides to remarry. If you wanted to remarry immediately after your divorce has been granted, the marriage officer will normally accept a certificate from your attorney as proof of divorce if the divorce certificate is not yet available. Your ex-spouse can obtain a certified copy of the divorce order by applying to the Registrar of the Supreme Court.
