Whoever filed the petition for dissolution would need to file a Motion to Voluntarily Dismiss the Petition for Dissolution. The pleading would need to be signed by the person wishing to withdraw the action. If a counter-petition was filed, the same will apply for the person who filed the counter-petition. At that point the judge should enter an order dismissing the action.

Follow the good advice of the other two attorneys. Good luck to you and good for both you in working in out.
Yes. Generally the person who filed to petition for divorce will withdraw the petition.

Absolutely. The easiest way is for whomever filed a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage to file a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal. Doing so terminates that petition without any need of an order signed by the Judge. So, if Husband filed the original petition, he would need to do that, and if the Wife filed a Counter-Petition, then she would need do so also, otherwise her counter-petition would remain viable/pending.
The answer provided is a general answer to a general question - and should NOT be construed as my giving specific legal advice, nor does it create any attorney/client relationship or expectation of privilege - and should you have specific questions you seek to address, then I encourage you to seek a consultation with an experienced Family Law Attorney in your area who may discuss your case with you and give you specific advice to assist you.
You can either do as several attorneys suggested and file a notice of voluntary dismissal if you have reconciled. If you are simply looking to put the case on hold, then you can ask for an abatement of your case.
