If you never paid your initial filing fee, or obtained a fee waiver, the court clerk should not have even accepted your papers in the first place.

Certainly your divorce was never finalized under the facts you have provided. Did you both file papers or was the divorce by default? Not sure how both of you were able to file papers without a fee waiver or paying the fee. I suggest you call the court clerk to confirm what you are saying is accurate and then do what you need to in order to fix it and finalize your divorce.
Perhaps the best thing for you to do now is hire a family law attorney to represent you in your case to make certain your divorce gets done
It depends whether the Judgment was entered. If the Judgment was entered then you are divorced as stated thereon. You should resubmit the Notice of Entry forms with the SASE envelopes so the case is completed. If the Judgment was not entered you need to determine why and correct any defects so it can be entered.
