I would talk to your former spouse about mutually dismissing your petitions. If you just dismiss yours, his will still be pending. Furthermore, if you don't respond, a default could be entered against you which may lead to an adverse decision. If you can't resolve it with your ex, you will want to contact an attorney since there are many issues pending that could adversely affect you.
My assistance with your question does not create an attorney/client relationship nor does it take the place of a consultation with or representation by a lawyer in your area who could handle your case. C.J. Bosco, Esq.
You need to address BOTH your petition and his counter petition. If you just dismiss yours then his remains and can be litigated.
You should consult an attorney for advice regarding your individual situation since every case is different and not all information is relayed in an online question. The Law Office of Ophelia Bernal-Mora, P.A. is a divorce and family law firm located in Orlando, Florida. Communication through Avvo does not create an attorney-client relationship. Please do not send any confidential information to our office until such time as an attorney-client relationship has been established.
