My daughter's estranged husband is dragging his heels signing and returning agreement paperwork. On 10th anniversary, he announced that he didn't love her, and hadn't for the last 3 years. She hired a lawyer, he calls a friend who is a lawyer. They have a temporary agreement (mediation) concerning child support, custody/visitation, division of property, etc. He claims the temporary agreement isn't binding because he never signed it. Daughter's lawyer says yes, it's binding because ex agreed to mediation, mediator signed the document, court accepted it.
Based on the temporary agreement, she instructed her attorney to proceed to the final agreement. His attorney's secretary has told him he shouldn't sign it because "it's too long." For whatever, despite his attorney (and him) having had the paperwork for 6 weeks, he just refuses to sign.
Is there a point at which the court will say "You've had it long enough, Ace. If you had any valid concerns, you would have voiced them by now. I'm gonna sign it for you, and we'll be done with it." If there is such a point, how long will the court let this thing gather moss waiting for ex to sign? Thanks in advance for any information.
