    Answered . Accord with Ms. Jett's response. Too bad that the Court's website case summary notes are so cryptic - hard for anybody to interpret them. I think that they mean only that the documents were received on November 19, 2012. It takes the Court 2-3 months to process Judgment packages, so I would expect that you should be receiving Notice of Entry of Judgment (if your documents were properly prepared) within the next month or so, assuming that you provided the requisite self-addressed, stamped envelope to the Clerk in your Judgment package. You could go to the Clerk's office to ask to inspect the Court file, but your file may be in a stack in the Default Judgment Clerk's office, and it may not be a good idea to have your file removed from that stack - it could set back the completion date.

    Answered . Based upon information provided, it appears your default Judgment/package has been recieved, and pending review of the package, may be entered upon approval. You can call the court and inquire as to the status.
    The review date is set in 2017 to determine if the case is resolved. If no action taken by 2017 (i.e. no final judgment) the Court would set the matter for a hearing to dismiss it.
    However, it appears that everything is on track at this time. If the Judgment is rejected, it will be returned to you with some instructions.
    If the Judgment is accepted, it will be entered, and mailed bakc to yoyu, and you will be divorced.

    Answered . I think that " 11/19/2012 Notice-Entry-Judgment Filed by Petitioner 11/19/2012 Judgment
    Filed by Petitioner" means a judgment was entered. The court mailed a notice of entry of judgment to the address that you put for you on the notice of entry of judgment. See if it showed up at this address. This will tell you the date that you are likely divorced.
