If you have tried to prepare your own divorce or are considering doing so, you will learn how confusing and difficult the divorce paperwork can be. But the worst is yet to come.
Most people will have some problems with the initial divorce documents. They will have items rejected, not file them correctly and not fill them out right. But the final test will be when you go to prepare the divorce judgment.
The divorce judgment is the last set of divorce documents that can be up to 25 pages long or more. These final judgment documents give everyone a problem.
But there is a bigger issue when completing the final divorce judgment forms and doing them wrong. When you submit the final judgment documents, they will go into a huge pile of judgments that are also waiting to be approved. The current wait time for your divorce judgment to be reviewed is 3 months to as long as 6 months.
This means that every time you submit your final divorce judgment, you will have to wait several months before your learn if it was done correctly or not. I know people that attempted to complete their own divorce and have submitted their judgment 3 times. They have been trying to complete their divorce for over 3 years. They have been trying to get their final divorce paperwork approved for over a year.
Some people figure it out really fast that they need help and others are a glutton for punishment and keep asking for more rejection. That was an attempt at humor, but you have to hand it to these folks that keep on trying.
