My husband and I filed for divorce in June of this year, the copy of correction I made is not the final decree. It appears the attorney mor his assistant did not make the correction and used the final page withy signature and attached it to the decree and filed it with the courts. Are we divorced since the information is incorrect? To make it even more complicated my ex and I are considering reconciliation.. in Oklahoma we have a 6 mths waiting period before you can remarry but you can file a reconciliation affidavit to cancel the current decree, but is it even a valid decree
Yes you are divorced until it is set aside or vacated. It is a legal document even if your marriage date is incorrect. Talk to an attorney and you can do an application and order for nunc pro tunc to correct it.
You can set aside the decree or, instead get remarried to each other at anytime, so long as neither have married someone else.
The decree should be presumed to be valid, typos and all.
If you reconcile you should decide if you would be better off keeping the property division in place by remarrying, or completely abandoning it by setting the decree aside.
Some would benefit from keeping the property division, drafting and following a pre-nuptial agreement in connection with remarrying each other.
You can file a joint application to have the decree set aside. It is valid currently. If you decide not to reconcile, call a lawyer to file a motion for order nunc pro tunc to correct the errors.
