I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
It can take the bank time to approve a loan and get all the paperwork together. Or if your ex-husband wants to shop around a little, that can take time. But it wouldn't be unreasonable to ask that he be required to refinance the property within 60-90 days or produce evidence that he's been applying for loans and getting declined. The judge can't make a bank give him a loan, so documentation from the bank is important if he's going to try to claim it's not possible. Another option is to ask that he provide proof of refinancing approval within, say, 30 days. The loan wouldn't have closed yet, but he should be able to at least give you documentation to show that it's coming. That could be done as part of the same motion.
