Fancy attorneys are often that way. The answer to your question depends on whether you, as plaintiff, are the ONLY party who has asked for any particular affirmative relief from the court, or whether the defendant has also asked for affirmative relief (typically by filing a counter complaint of some kind). If the former, you may be able to dismiss; if the latter, you may not do so without the other party's consent. If you are able to dismiss, there may be ramifications having to do with whether the court dismisses with or without prejudice (custody and visitation are always subject to modification based on a change in circumstances or in the best interests of the children, but if you filed based on certain factual grounds, then a dismissal with prejudice could preclude you from changing custody in the future based on those factual allegations). You should consult with an attorney.
