Liam Hemsworth's divorce window is sliding away. 

Back in late August, E! News confirmed the actor filed for divorce from his longtime love less than a year after they wed in December 2018 and shortly after the news broke of their breakup. 

While both have since gone on to date other people, there's been some hold up in the divorce process. According to a notice signed on Dec. 3 and sent by Los Angeles superior court to Hemsworth's attorney, the case is "not complete."

According to the notice, Hemsworth must have documents delivered to Cyrus and then file paperwork regarding those documents with the court if he wants to continue with the case. A status conference was scheduled for January 21, but he does not have to go to court if he files the documents or a request for dismissal before the date of the hearing. If he does not file the documents and does not attend the hearing, the star may face a fine to the court. 

Per the notice, Hemsworth was also warned that the court may dismiss the case for delay in prosecution if he fails to "take the appropriate steps in your case"
