I'm trying to fill out a final divorce decree. We have already established custody and support through the Attorney General's office I need to know if I need to fill out the information on the actual decree as well. We would not like to change anything that is established for the Attorney General
I would imagine Court's take various approaches to this. I would reference the order related to the children in your final decree of divorce and acknowledge that the previous order remains in place. I would then file a certified copy of the custody order along with the final decree of divorce. You will also need to include mention in your final decree that the Court that rendered the previous roder retains jurisdiction over the children.
