Q: Is there a form or way to ask the judge to make a ruling on a divorce?
My ex spouse has been intentionally delaying proceedings going on 3 years, we were only married for 4 years. She is doing this to cause me financial harm. I have sent 10+ offers to settle with zero negotiation from her and the court just keeps pushing every final trail date becuase she files more frivolous motions. There must be a way to ask petition/file a motion to ask the court to make a ruling and finalize the divorce?
A: Yes, it's a Motion to Set Trial and you need to file a Certificate of Readiness with it.
