Some men may refer to their ex wife as "wife" out of habit.

you can get the courts to move forward even without the other party's signature. it takes months longer though, * If a legal separation was granted that means that marital property has been divided according to the agreement of the party's involved or ruling of the court. The spouse who wishes the divorce to be finalized may request the court to grant the dissolution of the marriage under the state default laws. This process when in conjunction with a legal separation will not take any longer than regular divorce procedures.
