Default Divorce order signed but...

Hi everybody! I went to the courthouse yesterday to check the status of my application (I sent my form 25A back in December 18, 2013). After giving my court file number the clerk said that my divorce order was signed by the judge March 10, 2014 but I have not received it yet. Do you know approximately how long it takes from the time a judge signs it until an applicant receives this divorce order back? I want to celebrate but not until I have it in front of me. Hopefully this is finally it!

My original signed court order took 3 months. My divorce order took 2.

Thank you.
My original court order was to settle Custody/Access/Equalization/Support

I later filed my divorce paperwork attaching my court order above.

you could also make a copy of the order from the file and have the clerk certify it for $3.50 per page

Thank you so much. I will go back to the courthouse and make sure if the order is the original or the divorce one. I thought that when the clerk said the order has been signed I quickly assume that it was the divorce order as I simultaneously applied both of them. We agreed on all terms on the access equalization etc.

Default Finally... The good news!

Hi everyone, I just want to thank everybody here for their inputs. What an awesome, awesome forum. I've learned so much! It would not have been an easy journey for me if not for the great tips from you guys.
I AM FINALLY DIVORCED! If you have read my posts, you would see the timeline, from the day I moved out of the matrimonial house to my submission of the divorce order. To make the long story short, I submitted the divorce order on December 18, 2013. I posted here asking questions why I still had not received it and a few advised me to go to court to check it out, which I did! But I was asked to wait for it in the mail which I never received so Sahibjee advised me to go and request for a copy of the order:

I went back, and lo and behold, Sahibjee was right! I now have a copy of my divorce order and certificate. Divorce order was signed January 17, 2014 (that was fast), finalized February 17, 2014. I really really appreciate your helpful posts here.

Good luck to those who are still seeking their way to freedom.
