Ellicott City, MD asked in Divorce and Family Law for New York

Q: Do I need to "RJI" on this case or it is already taken care of? How can I know if RJI was already filed?

RJI -RE: UNCONTESTED MATRIMONIAL ACTION | Filed: 11/16/2021 | Received: 11/16/2021 | Status: *** Pending ***

My Uncontested matrimonial case is still pending. I did some research & found out about "request for judicial intervention. The case was filed by my Ex lawyer and therefore I have no knowledge regarding them filing the RJI document? Is that the reason that why case is still "pending" because they never filed the RJI document? How can I know if they did or if they didn't file it then how can I file that document so the decision can be made.

A: If an uncontested is fully filed then an RJI would likely already be filed. A Judgment can not be signed unless an RJI is filed.

A: We certainly have no idea what a prior attorney did on a case, and we don't know what "pending" means in clerk-speak. The asker may want to visit the clerk's office where the uncontested divorce was filed to determine whether "pending" means an RJI was not filed, or whether it means something else.
