Papers have been received!!!
Finally, the attorney received BM's signed papers yesterday and sent them over to bf via email last night. The papers were not notarized until January 29th, not January 24th like bf's attorney was originally told which is why they have not been received until now. Still took 2 weeks to be delivered to an office in the same town as BM's attorney, which I think is ridiculous, but whatever. The signed papers are now in the hands of bf's attorney so finally he can do what he needs to do and the processing time can start. Perfect gift the day before Valentine's Day, although a final decree would be better, but it just doesn't work that quickly!
On a positive note, while it wouldn't be a big deal if my bf had his daughter on Valentine's Day, we would of celebrated a different day or got a babysitter, we are child free tomorrow and have nice dinner plans and will be going ice skating as well! I hope you all have a great V-Day with your SO.
