Is It Possible To Cancel A Divorce?
Dismissing a case that you have started with the court?
A prospective client reached out to me saying, that she had filed for a divorce, but is now having second thoughts and wants to cancel that filing. She asked me if there was anything that can be done to stop the process.
In Nevada specifically, there are two ways that you can cancel or what they call, “dismiss a case” that has already been filed.
The first way is to file a notice of dismissal with the court. When you do this, be sure to file this notice without prejudice. What this means is, you will have an opportunity to later file the same case if you so choose to. For example, you file a divorce, you change your mind, you reconcile, maybe a year later, six months later you decide it’s not working out and you want to file the case again. You will not be precluded from doing so if you filed a notice of dismissal without prejudice.
The second way for you to dismiss a case that has already been filed, is to do nothing. Once a case has been filed and there is no activity in that case for about six months or so, the court will automatically dismiss the case for lack of activity. Again, this will be dismissed without prejudice, so that later if you choose to file the same case again, you are not precluded from doing that.
