Divorce waiting period
in Missouri is there a period of repudiation after the Judge has signed the decree? In other words when is the divorce final? Which statute etc. addresses this topic if so?

Re: Divorce waiting period
You are divorced as of the date that te Judge signs the Judgment. However, either side can file a Motion to Set Aside the Judgment within thiry days, and if successful, the Judgment might be set aside by the Judge. Also, any party can file a Motion to Set Aside the Judgment based upon certain types of fraud up to a year after the Judgment is signed. I always advise my clients to wait at least the thirty day period before getting married to someone else just to avoid complications, although it is not technically necessary.
