Default Paint Curing

I have been getting mixed signals on this subject.

After you have a car painted how long do you need to let the paint cure. I have been told that in a heated garage 1 week is enough but then I should not put any wax or anything on it for 6 to 8 weeks. Should it really be staying in the garage for 6 to 8 weeks or is that one week enough. What is the best way to wash it off, because it will get dirty from the shop to the house. I want the paint to stay in good condition.

Some people say to drive the car but park it in a warm garage every night for a while.

Others have said leave it in the garage for a week wax it then drive it.

If anyone has any input on the best process for this I would love to hear it.
