Legal items


#1

I have submitted my divorce forms to courthouse. I also served the papers to my spouse. What I have not done is taken the green card and my notarized form that papers were served to the courthouse. It has been almost 1 month since then. I have second thoughts about the divorce.
Is there a time limit of when I can file my green card and set up a court date for judge to sign off on divorce? WIll it ever become "expired"
Please advise. Not sure what to do at this point.
Thank you for your attention

You can file the affidavit of service using the green card prior to setting the hearing. You can set the divorce for hearing as as late as you want, provided you don’t wait so long that the court administratively closes your file for lack of prosecution.
