Your lawyer would have to have filed a divorce petition--or you would not have been before the Judge. But if you do not have a Final Decree of Divorce signed by the Judge you are not divorced.
Depending on how long ago that was, the Court may (or may not) have dismissed your case. If that happened you will need to start all over.
If you didn't pay your lawyer to complete your case, you may want to do that.

If the divorce is granted, the parties are divorced. If a decree is not done eventually the case is in danger of dismissal for non-prosecution. A Final Decree of Divorce needs to be done to end the case. It is done when a Judge signs the Final Decree of Divorce.
