(A) A decree of dissolution of marriage or legal separation, or declaration of invalidity of marriage is final when entered, subject to the right of appeal. An appeal from a decree of dissolution that does not challenge the finding that the marriage is irretrievably broken does not delay the finality of the provision of the decree that dissolved the marriage beyond the time for appealing from that provision, and either of the parties may remarry pending appeal. An order directing payment of money for support or maintenance of the spouse or minor child(ren) shall not be suspended or the execution thereof stayed pending the appeal.
(B) The Tribal Court may, upon hearing within six (6) months after the entry of a decree of legal separation, convert the decree of legal separation to a decree of dissolution of marriage.
(C) The Tribal Court shall, upon motion of either party after expiration of six (6) months from the entry of a legal separation, convert the decree of legal separation to a decree of dissolution of marriage.
(D) Upon request by a party whose marriage is dissolved or declared invalid, the Tribal Court shall order his or her former name restored.
