Is there a way that they can speed up the process that they already have in NY? It has been more than 14 months. Courts do not have a maximum of time to respond? it seems like is out of the ordinary to take so long when it is just an uncontested divorce. And paper work seems to be in order since they have not sent anything related to that.
My last question, what do you recommend to me, what you think that will be faster, his wife filing dismissal of divorce and my father filing divorce in FL or to set a status conference here in NY?
