  1. It appears that the Judgment package was received on 4/24 - less than 2 months ago. Assuming the package is not rejected for one or more various reasons, it can take up to 3 and sometimes 4 months before you get the signed judgment and notice of entry of judgment.

  2. I agree with Attorney Waxman. I have had Judgment papers returned in 3 weeks and I have had them turned around in 4+ months. If there are errors, they will be returned with a reason why they were returned. Once errors are corrected, you will submit them again for entry of final judgment. Best of luck.

  3. I agree with counsel. It may take approximately 4 months before you receive the final judgment. Good luck.
