I do not think that any state statutes actually address the issue but then again it does not say "30 business days" does it?  I would think that the 30 days includes weekends and holidays and that it begins the day after the divorce becomes final.  The only thing that I would be concerned about is if the 30th day falls on a weekend or holiday but I doubt that that would matter either.   It may be best for you to ask an attorney with in your state that practices in this area just to be sure.  It sounds as if you are counting the days - literally.  Good luck.
