I am going through a divorce and the judgement package has been excepted. What we do next? What's the next step in the divorce process?
I don't know what you mean by "excepted". If you mean "accepted", then wait until you receive something back from the Court, which hopefully will be a Notice of Entry of Judgment and a conformed copy of a Judgment - but it could be a rejection sheet advising of your errors or omissions. If you mean "rejected", then follow the recommendations made on the rejection sheet and re-submit.
If your divorce and judgment package has been "accepted", by whom, the parties, or the Court? If the parties, meaning you and your spouse, have signed all the paperwork, it needs to be filed with the Court and then you wait until the judgment paperwork is processed by the Court. You must provide self-addressed stamped envelopes for both parties to the Court, and the Court will send you a copy of the Notice of Entry of Judgment after the Judgment is entered. You can then go to Court and get a copy of your Judgment, unless a copy has been sent by the Clerk of the Court.
