The Divorce Countdown

This afternoon, a packet of legal papers was waiting in my mailbox when I came home from work. It was my divorce papers, finally signed and approved by a judge. We have to wait 60 days after the papers were filed before the divorce takes effect.

The papers were filed on 26 March, so 25 May looks like the day.

May I never have to deal with the legal system again for as long as I live.

[Update 3/31/08: Being, as I am, so deficit in legalese, I misinterpreted the opening paragraph of our divorce decree. There is a 60-day waiting period, but it began when we separated (over 2-1/2 years ago). So the waiting period is over, and we are now completely legally divorced.]
