I have a date for when the divorce will be final. I don’t know why it’s taken so long; my attorney led me to believe that it all could be done within a couple of weeks. The date the judge will sign the divorce decree is December 15, almost two months after the mediation. I’m mostly looking forward to changing my name. Right now I’m going by both my married name, and my maiden name (depending on context), so I usually have to think a moment before I say my full name.
In case you were wondering, I’m really looking forward to this being DONE.
ETA: I won’t have to be there. I get to talk to the judge on the phone, first thing in the morning. Just me, not X.
