In the state of Massachusetts, is a divorce final 90 or 120 days after one's court date? And will I receive formal notification of the final divorce date in the mail?

If your divorce was granted inder a 1A joint petition for divorce, then the nisi period (waiting period after a judgment for divorce is granted) is 120 days. If however, your divorce was filed under a 1B complaint for divorce, the nisi period is 90 days.
You should receive a judgment in the mail prior to the nisi period has expired. You do not have to do anything, passage of time only is required for the divorce to be final.
