Should I Get A Divorce Certificate?

When you file the motion for summary judgment, you will also set a date for hearing. When you go the hearing you should take three copies of your Divorce Judgment with you. The judge will sign the Judgment that day and the clerk will give you a certified copy.

How do you know when you’re divorced. All I have is a Motion for Summary Judgment which states the week the judge is going to sign off on the divorce. Should I get a certified letter stating the divorce is final?
