Stopping a Divorce: Decide Together

Before you make the final decision to end the legal proceeding, it is important to meet your spouse and discuss about the future. This is the time when you must speak openly about how you feel about your marriage, your life together as a married couple, and your possible future together. Your spouse must agree with your decision to end it. Always remember that even if you have filed a petition, your spouse has the right to response and ask for the process to continue. So, both must agree to cancel the proceeding before you work on the legal aspects on stopping it in a legal way.
