    Hi,

    Been waiting on an uncontested divorce since 2012. I am the defendant in the case and when it was filed, my lawyer and theirs went through everything. I have been looking up the case on eTrack and saw the following two entries:

    Appearance Date - 02/03/2014
    Time -
    On For - Supreme Trial
    Appearance Outcome -
    Justice / Part - NO JUSTICE ASSIGNED UNCONTESTED-AMSTER
    Comments -
    Motion Seq -

    Appearance Date - 11/27/2013
    Time -
    On For - Supreme Initial (first time on)
    Appearance Outcome - Adjourned
    Justice / Part - NO JUSTICE ASSIGNED UNCONTESTED-AMSTER
    Comments - DEFECT 12/17/13
    Motion Seq -

    Can anyone tell me what "On For - Supreme Trial" means? I know what the supposed defect of 12/17/13 was and addressed it through my lawyer so I am hoping that this means the divorce is finally getting moved forward. I find it so impossibly irritating that no one can give me a straight answer as to what is going on so I have had to resort to trying to figure it out on my own.

    Thanks in advance.

    D

    Just one. It would be illegal to have more than one at a time. :)

    By the way, you know the answer to my question by any chance?

    proboner, I suggest you inquire of your lawyer.

    What I can discern, based on what you posted is the following:

    Your case hasn't been docketed because its awaiting a judge to be assigned.

    You initial trial court in NY is called the supreme court.

    Even if you're in a populous area, two years does seem quite lengthy especially for an uncontested divorces.

    I'm told an uncontested divorce, assuming all the parties sign off quickly, shouldn't take more than 90-120 days.

    I suggest you reach out to your attorney, not by telephone, but by email and snail mail letter, (registered, Return Receipt Requested = RRRR).

    Thank you Army Judge for the helpful reply.

    I heard it had something to do with delays in record retrieval due to impacts from super storm Sandy. I guess it is possible but I have my doubts about that as the reason for such a long delay. I am hoping this is a light at the end of the tunnel perhaps.
