WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU HAVE A CHANGE OF HEART? People sometimes ask me, “What if I file for divorce and then change my mind?” It happens. A Complaint for Divorce can be dismissed voluntarily with a one page court form by the moving party prior to entry of a Judgment of Divorce. Now, if you file, and your spouse files a Counter-Claim, and you want to dismiss and they do not, then, the case is moving forward. But, filing is just the beginning of the process – you have a few months at a minimum, if not considerably longer in many cases. And, I have seen it happen – if you file for divorce, finalize your divorce, and, decide you want to get back together…you still can!
