Missouri: Your Divorce is Final, What's Left

You have finally signed all the paperwork. Or you have just received your Judgment and Order from the Court. You have exhausted all of your remedies, including appeal. Is it finally over? Well, almost.

Now you need to follow your order. Did you agree to sign a car over to your ex? Then find the title and a gift affidavit and send them to her. Need to change your last name? Head on over to the Department of Motor Vehicles and the Social Security Administration and get your driver’s license and social security card changed.
