Greetings. In Wake County there are local rules that define how long attorneys can take to draft, review, and submit orders, but generally judges are given great deference in completeing their orders. Attorneys may sometimes check in with the judge and ask them how the order is going or if they require further information, but judges have a lot of information to review from a trial. I have had an order take even longer than 3 months, but I agree that it is nerve racking when that happens.
If there is adultery by a dependent spouse, that is a bar to alimony. Thank you.
