It is not unusual, especially in New York County and other counties in New York City, for it to take two months for the judge to sign the judgment. You can request your attorney to provide you a copy of the receipt for the filing of the “Note of Issue.”
You may also go to the county clerk’s office in the county in which you reside, and request to see the entire matrimonial file which can be identified
by the index number usually located at the top right-hand corner of the divorce documents and notices which you have received.
At such time, you may ask the clerk of the status of the divorce and if the judge has signed the judgment.
