    You need to first look to your documents of filings to discover the stage of your proceedings. If a judgment has not yet been granted, spouses can ask the judge to stop divorce proceedings.

    Courts frequently stop divorce proceedings to allow for counseling, mediation, or an opportunity to negotiate, unless either spouse demands dissolution, in which case the divorce proceedings will resume. Be warned, courts do not take kindly to delay tactics or unreasonable arguments.

    Since divorce laws differ among states, it is important to speak to a lawyer who is familiar with the local rules of your area.

    It isn’t that difficult but even if you both want to reconcile there are still consequences when not complying with court orders, subpoena’s, etc and you need to know the legal resources for withdrawal so your husband doesn’t get in any trouble for not following an order that may have been served on him.

    Another option is to call your clerk of the court and tell them of your situation and steps you need to file a petition to stop proceedings.

    Best of luck to you two 🙂

    Do you have an attorney? If you do, then he or she will know.

    And if you don’t, then WHY NOT???

    Divorce is not for novices. Hire a professional.

    In this state, if no action is taken within a year it is dropped.
