I filed for divorce in 4/2009 and the divorce went into default as my spouse did not respond. I did submit a judgement package a few months ago and it was rejected and I am in the process of submitting another. I received a petition for divorce from my spouse a week ago 2012 however, my case is still active. I sent a letter to the court he filed in requested dismissal but they said it can't be done by mail. I have to go in to the court which I plan on doing. My questions are do we both have to agree on dismissing his case since I already have a case opened? Do I also respond to his petition filling out the check boxes/completing it as a respondent? Do I file a Form CIV-110? My case was filed in Burbank California and his was filed In Santa Monica, California.
