The Most Unpopular Divorce Statute

43 O.S. 107.1 A. 1. In an action for divorce where there are minor children involved, the court shall not issue a final order thereon for at least ninety (90) days from the date of filing the petition which ninety (90) days may be waived by the court for good cause shown and without objection by either party.

I get at least two calls a day asking if I can get the judge to waive this requirement for no really compelling reason.  Answer?  It depends on the judge; each one has his own standard of what amounts to "good cause" for waiving the 90 days.
