30 days


Dear divorcethecon:

Greetings. I am not willing to count the days of your divorce for you. I would advise you to look at the rules on calendaring the divorce provided on our website or in the information provided by the court. Best of luck.

The response posted above is based upon the limited factual information made available and is not intended as a full and complete response to the question. The only reliable manner to obtain complete and adequate legal advice is to consult with an attorney, fully explain your situation, and allow the attorney sufficient opportunity to research the applicable law and facts required to render an accurate opinion. The basic information provided above is intended as a public service but a full discussion with an attorney should be undertaken before taking any action.


I have filed my divorce and have proof of service by sheriff dated Oct. 12th 2004. In the county where I reside, the court date to hear my divorce will either be November 12 or else I have to wait until November 22. I will not be in town on that date as I will be on vacation. I want my divorce finalized if at all possible by the 12th. In your calculation, is that the full day waiting period? The clerks in my county have differing opinions as to whether or not to calendar it on that date. Thank you.
