Default How long did you wait for a final order??

My trial was held from January 22-24, and I am still waiting for a final order from the judge. Does anyone know if this is a standard sort of time frame?

My understanding is that it depends on the judge and how long it takes them to compile their material. I have heard of some people waiting over 6 months. My final order was on consent and took less than 3 weeks....but the judge did not have to write up anything...basically it was just a rubber stamp of approval. Your situation is different if you went to trial.

On consent - 4 months and still nothing. Although maybe my ex's lawyer bailed out and didn't even submit the settlement.
Previous on consent settlements: some took 3 weeks, some 3 months.
I don't think anybody can give you any time frame.

My trial was in December and I received the final order in April.
