  1. No. Assuming it has been finalized, you are divorced.


  2. You are divorced if you have a final decree.

    This answer is provided for informational purposes only. Actual legal advice can only be provided in an office consultation by an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction, with experience in the area of law in which your concern lies.


  3. The misspelling of your name, in and of itself, does not affect the validity of your documents.
