My Husband Filed For Divorce In Pasco County But We Are Getting Back Together - How Do We Stop The Divorce?
Deciding whether or not to divorce is almost never an easy decision. There are a myriad of issues to consider, including the effect on your kids, how your assets and debts will be divided, whether or not you can afford to live alone, your feelings for your spouse, child custody and child support, health insurance, and many more.
It’s not uncommon for people to start the divorce process and have a change of heart. Others worry about what will happen if they stop the process but later change their minds and decide they do want a divorce.
If you or your spouse has filed for divorce in Florida but have changed your mind, the divorce process can be stopped. In order to stop the divorce process, the person who filed for divorce must withdraw the divorce petition. This is the best step to take if you are both absolutely certain you want to get back together and do not want a divorce.
If you are uncertain about whether or not the divorce should proceed, you should speak with an attorney about whether your case can be postponed. Your attorney may be able to ask for a continuance, which will allow you some time to sort through your feelings. One benefit to doing that is that if things do not work out later, you will save some time and money by continuing with your original case rather than being forced to reopen the case later.
It’s important to speak with your attorney as well as your spouse if you are having second thoughts about whether or not to continue with a divorce. Your attorney can walk you through the legal consequences of choosing to postpone or withdraw your divorce petition.
