WHEN ARE THE PARTIES DIVORCED, OR WHEN IS THE DIVORCE FINAL IN CARBONDALE, JACKSON COUNTY, ILLINOIS?

WHEN ARE THE PARTIES DIVORCED, OR WHEN IS THE DIVORCE FINAL IN CARBONDALE, JACKSON COUNTY, ILLINOIS?

A DIVORCE IS FINAL ON THE DATE THE JUDGE ENTERS THE JUDGMENT OF DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE, UNLESS THE ORDER ENTERED BY THE JUDGE PROVIDES OTHERWISE.

ONCE THE JUDGMENT OF DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE IS ENTERED, THE PARTIES ARE DIVORCED.

ON THE OTHER HAND, THE ORDER ENTERED BY THE JUDGE DIVORCING THE PARTIES, EVEN THOUGH THE PARTIES WOULD BE DIVORCED ON THAT DATE, DOES NOT BECOME FINAL UNTIL THE EXPIRATION OF THIRTY (30) DAYS FROM THE DATE THE ORDER WAS ENTERED.

UNTIL THE DIVORCE BECOMES FINAL, EITHER PARTY COULD FILE A MOTION OR GIVE NOTICE OF AN APPEAL DEPENDING ON FACTS AND CIRCUMSTANCES, WHICH MAY RESULT IN CONTINUING PROCEEDINGS.
