There may be three situations and rulings will differ accordingly. 1. If the divorced woman was pregnant, her Iddat will pass as she gives birth to a child, 2. If she was given revocable divorce and she was not pregnant then from beginning she will have to pass the Iddat of death that is four months and ten days, 3. If she was divorced irrevocably and she was not pregnant, she will have to pass the Iddat which is longer out of both the two periods of Iddat, that means, she will have to pass both Iddat in this case.
And Allah knows the best
