At this point, man I just wanna move on. I've done almost everything I can to be improve myself and become better than ever. But, I hit the end of the leash because I still have the LEGAL BULLSHIT to wait for! You know, the settling of the house/cars, other assets, the forms to fill, any debt, bla bla bla. Arrrgghhh. I fully cooperate and paid the retaining fee, etc. To me, this should take far less time than it has been. Has this drove anyone else nuts waiting ""patiently"" for the final stages to happen?!

Part of the delay is just busy lawyers doing their schtick. Okay, I can deal with that. It's frustrating and slow, but at least progress was being made.
Now my idiot STBX is letting his lawyer run up the fees by renegotiating things we've already agreed on! (I'm remembering that there was a reason I handled all the paperwork in our household.)
Sounds like your STBX was too busy living in La-La-Land to deal with reality. She probably only got a lawyer because she suddenly realized, "Oh, I can't get married until I'm divorced." At least she has a reason not to drag it out. But that would require sane reasoning, and we all know how that goes.
But I hear you. The whole process just sucks.
Two steps forward and one step backwards, is still progress.
You could change that quote to "getting a divorce takes forever".
