Your divorce date is what it says on your Judgment of Divorce, which is usually the day that you go to court. The date 90 days later is the day on which your divorce becomes absolute or final.
Your divorce is not finalized until 90 days have transpired since the entry on the docket of your divorce judgment date. After the 90 day wait period your divorce becomes “absolute” by action of law (without further proceedings). Until the judgment Absolute occurs, you are still legally married.
This is not legal advice and is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship. You should speak to an attorney for further information.
i would add that usually the judge tells the parties about this during the final hearing.
