What is a Final Judgement of Dissolution of Marriage

A final Judgement of Dissolution of Marriage may not be entered by Court until at least 20 days have elapsed from the date of filing the original petition in the dissolution of marriage. There are some circumstances when a court can enter the judgement earlier than the 20 days. 

The final Judgement is fully enforceable by the court including the terms of a judge's orders or any agreements.
