As per your query, A rule nisi is a Latin phrase where the ruling of a court becomes final unless one or both parties show cause for it not to be. A rule nisi is an order to show cause. It means that the ruling is absolute unless the party to whom it applies can show cause why it should not apply. It is issued in divorce cases to tell the parties that they have to wait a certain period before making their divorce final. This is to allow time for anyone who objects to the divorce to tell the court why they object. The rule nisi can often be set aside with the mutual consent of the spouses.

Hope it helps,

Additionally, A decree nisi (non-absolute ruling) is a ruling by a court that does not have any force until such time that a particular condition is met. Once the condition is met the ruling becomes decree absolute and is binding. Typically, the condition is that no new evidence or further petitions with a bearing on the case are introduced to the court.
