    Answered . Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done. tie Court system is broken. There are too many cases for to few Judges. when you spouse comes to this same realization you will have a settlement. Until that time your case may linger in court

    Answered . Since it is the court that does not have the time due to other pressing matters there is nothing that can be done. Discuss any possible options with your attorney.
