How long my law does a surrogate judge in the state of new york have to sign an order or hold on to it until he signs it?

Asked about 2 years ago - Brooklyn, NY

I am so tired of this I feel my civil rights have been violated. I do not mean to offend anyone, but if we were a white family. this would not be happening to us. i won over 10 million dollars in a med malpractice and now my own lawyer has claimed i know nothing about how to handle money and filed an article 81 all because i did not want to use his boys to structure my settlement i had my own financial advisors from metlife had them meet together cause i thought it was the appropriate thing to do BIG MISTAKE my attor and his boys was all over them as if they were taking something from them. i was so embarrass. this article 81 is a smoke screen and the judge cannot see that. just because i had a stroke i am still of sound mind the judge told me that i do not need a guardian! i am a mother
