I agree with Stephanie. It should have already been done by now. Call and call and call. Write letters. If they have a contact form on their email site, send a message. Keep bothering them until it is done.

Huh? The judge grants the divorce. Once it's granted, there are no papers to be signed. All you're waiting for is a copy of the decree absolute from the judge. This could take up to 6 months.

Think of it this way....the only reason to hold the papers, is because they have not been signed.
