Dwyane Wade’s marriage problems are over, divorce is now finalized:

A Cook County judge as expected finalized the divorce of Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade and his wife, Siohvaughn, Friday morning, though her attorney vowed to appeal.

“I feel relieved,” said Wade, dressed in a dark blue pin-striped suit outside of Judge Marya Nega’s courtroom.

“It’s been a long, long process and to finally get this part behind us, I feel great, even though we still have more to get done,” added the NBA star who played his high school ball at Richards High School in Oak Lawn. In the brief hearing, Nega said Wade had proven irreconcilable differences with his high school sweetheart and dissolved the marriage, though issues concerning custody of the couple’s two sons and division of marital assets haven’t yet been decided.

All previous orders, including one granting Wade “physical possession” of his sons, will remain in place until further proceedings take place, the judge ordered.

Poor Siohvaughn didn’t even show up:

Siohvaughn Wade didn’t attend the hearing, but was expected at the courthouse to sign paperwork, her attorney, Michael Kalcheim said. After the hearing, Kalcheim said he planned to file an appeal with the appellate court Monday because it was improper to dissolve a marriage before all custody and financial issues have been resolved.

“The judge made a mistake,” Kalcheim said. Wade is expected to become a free agent next week and could command well over $100 million from NBA teams eager to sign him. The couple had been separated since August 2007. The divorce proceedings have been bitter, marked by allegations and lawsuits brought by both sides.

“Mrs. Wade has committed her final flagrant foul,” Wade’s attorney, James Pritkin said. “Her game is over.”

    atleast he didnt get a white jumpoff they make a lovey couple.

    The marriage is over. D-Wade has 18 years to deal this situation. Why appeal a divorce? If a man no longer wants you – move on. She’s making the situation worst then what it should be. Obviously the judge sees something that we don’t that makes her believe that the divorce needs to be final so that they can proceed on with the division of the assets, child support and spousal support, it’s ashame that it had to end in this manner. PEACE!

    no matter what happened between them she proved to have no class and no respect for the well being of their children. Pray she comes to closure for the kids sake.

    I’m so tired of divorce stories – don’t get married it you know you’re gonna divorce.. What happened to “till death do us part?”

  • Angee

    I just hope he is not planning on having a lasting relationship with Gabby Union. She will be on to the next one within 6 months, especially if he gets full custody of his children.

    Such a sad story to me, considering their full history.

    Even if a prenuptial was not signed, she should get something reasonable. Let’s be honest, greed sets in when there isn’t one. Women can’t get their way with everything. Plus, she’ll get child support anyway.

  • jojo

    Am I the only one who thinks this guy is just gorgeous…. Despite his case. He does look very nice. And all the comments are really to the point.

  • heytheremami

    I feel she and her lawyers were trying to drag this divorce out because she wants some of that free agent money. Bottomline , it doesn’t take almost 3 years to divorce a person. Plus that’s not the 1st time she didn’t show up either. Btw she cant get child support if she doesn’t have custody. She is only entitled to alimony and property.
