How long can a Family Court Judge won't rule? 3 Answers as of October 17, 201390 days post hearing on exceptions to report of magistrate. Defendant did not present argument. Child support arrears accrue with delinquency reported by the court clerk. Filed a memorandum of disposition one week ago and still no response from the judge. I asked for status conference and the judge denies. What can I do if the judge does not rule? Can I ask the Chief Justice to intervene? My ex is $16,000 in arrears and I am in Miami-Dade County.

The thing to do is hire counsel. Judges frequently take their time in ruling on family issues, but they can be reversed on appeal. There would be a different result if an attorney asks for a status conference and submits a proposed order.
