If a divorce is filed but no further action is taken, the court can dismiss the case.
This communication does not create an attorney/client relationship and is not legal advice. ALWAYS conduct a detailed in-person consultation with an attorney before taking any legal action or making any decision that could impact in any way your legal matter.
It depends. Call the circuit clerk's office at the courthouse. Ask them what happens. Sometimes they r dismissed with notice, sometimes without, some not dismissed at all.
