Assuming all the paperwork has been properly prepared and signed then it is submitted to the court. The wait depends on each county. Some counties return the paper work in a couple of weeks while other counties may take several weeks or a few months to do the processing. If you want a date certain for the paperwork to signed by a Judge, it is possible to set a court hearing for the Judge to review and sign the papers. Consult with an attorney as far as which procedure would be the most timely in your county.
