What does

Does it mean the date we went to court and settled the agreement? Or does it mean months later it was finally made official? I gave my ex-wife 18 months to find a new place and have our

house put up for sale last year; we went to court 18 months go, and the judge agreed to our agreement, child custody, everything. However, it was 3 months later before it was signed by the court.

After entry of judgment of divorce means the date it was entered in the court records which was three months after the court appearance.  It usually does not take that long after a court appearance for an item to be entered in the court records.
