The delay is simply a matter of math. There are many pending cases, a limited number of judges, and only so many hours in the week.
It isn’t unusual to wait six months, and sometimes it takes longer.
Many people find this part of the process to be even harder than negotiating the settlement.
At least during that phase, you were making decisions and had some sense of control.
Waiting on something important can cause a lot of anxiety, and many people end up wondering whether they’ve filed the forms properly, or if they’ll ever get their decree at all.
When you work with an experienced Brooklyn divorce attorney, you can trust that your settlement will pass muster with the court, and that your material was properly submitted.
You also have a trusted resource to whom you can turn for updates on the status of your case.
