The term "Waiting periods" in this section deal with the time that the court requires must pass from the time the divorce is filed, and the time that the Judge signs your divorce decree.

A decree of divorce shall become absolute at the expiration of three months (the “nisi period”) from the entry thereof but, in its discretion, the court may fix an earlier date upon which the decree shall become absolute. If one of the parties dies prior to the expiration of the “nisi period,” the decree shall be deemed absolute immediately prior to death.
