Our divorce case has been delayed, court is behind, the clerk told my husband to file L-1300 in order to expedited the judgement. He wanted me to sign. I am not sure if I should do so. Is this going to help the case to get finalized faster or is this going to hurt me personally if I sign it?
It would be difficult to answer this question without knowing more about the case.

Since legal advice must be tailored to the specific circumstances of each case, and laws are constantly changing, nothing provided herein should be used as a substitute for the advice of competent legal counsel.
The L-1300 form is the Expedited Judgment attachment....yes, this will expedite the processing of your Judgment, as long as you have checked all the pertinent boxes thereon and done what is required by the form. This form is supposed to be attached to the rest of your Judgment documents and is designed to make the Court's clerk's job of processing your Judgment easier and faster. Signing and submitting the form with the rest of your Judgment forms shouldn't hurt your case - HOWEVER, this is assuming you are submitting a joint, stipulated Judgment or already have had a trial and orders for Judgment by the Court.....
