Can I Stop a Divorce in Arizona if I Change My Mind?
Stopping a Divorce Case in Arizona
If you have filed or are considering filing for divorce, you may have asked yourself can I stop a divorce in Arizona if I change my mind? Some people ask can I stop a divorce in Arizona if I change my mind. Well, the short answer is maybe. The judge will be more than happy to stop the divorce at any time before the court files the signed Decree of Dissolution of Marriage with the clerk of the court, so long as both spouses agree to dismiss the case.
Generally, the court will not, however, dismiss the divorce proceedings unless both spouses agree to do so, regardless of who initially filed the divorce. One exception to these rules occurs when a spouse files for divorce but never serves the divorce petition on his or her spouse and the other spouse has not filed an Answer to the Divorce Petition. In this situation, the person who filed for divorce may voluntarily dismiss his or her Divorce Petition.
