 It can takes MONTHS. Really depends on the case load when you file and how busy Family Court is. I just filed to have mine reviewd and don't have a court date until OCT 6th!!!!!

 Exactlly!!! I know in my county in Wisconsin, there are a lot of cases but not enough workers and they are  not hiring anymore so it takes a while. When I first did my case in 1996, it only took about 2 months from when I filed. There are a lot of divorces, single parents, etc. I wish you a speedy case.

thanks i was done being broke all the time not being able to pay bills with having money left for her things so i decided instead of just filing for medical support for her i was going to go for it all if he thinks his gf and him need to have a baby hes going to support the first one regardless of whether he wanted anything to do with her or not

In MI it really did not take long. It took like a month but I guess it really depends because I have known people that have had to wait a couple of months.

As long as he has a job, you will get money soon!  It took me 2 years to start seeing and $ becuase he refused to get a job to pay support.  They ended up throwing him in jail and everything until he wised up and started paying his fair share!
