If this has been covered before i apologize i looked but i didnt see any similar threads.
Look up the laws for your county, since that's what things are based on. In Monroe County, they're obliged by law to respond in writing inside of 6 months. Having an attorney fire off a letter reminding of that after the 6 month period usually gets the judge and/or sheriff to move quickly.
A casual call to the county clerk to verify they have everything they need from you and where your paperwork is is fine. Trying to push it might delay the process.
