What if I Change My Mind About Getting a Summary Dissolution?

en español>

There are three reasons you might have for wanting to stop the Summary Dissolution:

  1. You have decided to return to your spouse and continue the marriage;
  2. You may want to change over to the Regular Dissolution (divorce) as a better way of getting your divorce; or
  3. The wife discovers she is pregnant.

Either spouse may change his or her mind and decide to stop the Summary Dissolution from continuing.

To do this, fill out a:

  • Notice of Revocation of Petition for Summary Dissolution (Form FL-830) Opens new window
    and file it at family court.
  • The Notice of Revocation form should be filed at court less than six months after the Joint Petition form was filed.
  • If your spouse has not yet filed a Request for Final Judgment form, you can still revoke the Summary Divorce by filing the Revocation form.
  • The Notice of Revocation should only be filled out if you want to stop the divorce.
