I was a pro se plaintiff in a breach of contract civil action. I had to move to dismiss because of family problems and inability to attend two hearings. The judge granted my motion and the electronic docket says: VOLUNTARY DISMISSAL W/LEAVE TO REFILE-ALLOWED. I do wish to re-file at a later date.
Does the leave to re-file mean that I can re-file under the same case number and not have to pay a filing fee again, or is it just saying that I am allowed to re-sue in the way I would a normal lawsuit, or does it mean something else? Thank you in advance.
This is Cook County Circuit Court.
