After my divorce hearing, will they mail me a divorce certificate? How long does it take?

I already had my divorce hearing, and the judge signed off on everything, but i forgot to ask if they were mailing me the paperwork. Are they going to mail a divorce certificate? And if so, about how many weeks will it take?

    Yes, all courts will mail a final divorce decree however when depends on the state and the court.
    Some states have waiting periods after the divorce papers have been filed. Some will require a wait of 30, 60 days even up to 6 months after the papers have been filed before you are legally divorced.
    If your state has a waiting period, you will receive papers by mail once the time has expired. If not, it should not take more than a few weeks to a month, all depending on how busy the clerks office is.

    Mine took six weeks. And you may be surprised to find out when the judge actually signs the document! I thought I was divorced and got married, only to learn later he hadn’t actually signed it until the day after I married my second wife!
