Not sure what that means. The Court rules mandate that an Order must be submitted to the Judge within 20 days of the hearing. BUT, that often does not happen. I've seen cases where orders weren't done for years. So long as an Order complies with the "court minutes" (notes), it is generally still possible to do the Order and submit it to the Judge. Just be sure you do "Notice of Entry" once the order is signed by the judge and filed. That is often forgotten since the Order is what most people are seeking when they come to Court.
