Trying to stop divorce process can be tricky, but it will be exponentially easier if you are the person who filed the petition for divorce in the first place. But even so, the process to stop the divorce may change from the kind of divorce that was filed. The easiest kind of stop-divorce process will be if the divorce that was filed was a no-fault kind of divorce. A no-fault divorce means that the one that was served the petition has no legal right to stop the divorce, only the party that filed the petition. If this is the kind of divorce that you filed, then all you have to do is to write a letter stating your wishes to stop the divorce, have it signed by your attorney and your spouse as witnesses, and have it notarized. Present this to the judge presiding over your case immediately, in order for the divorce process to stop.
An at-fault divorce is only really being recognized in the state of New York today, and is by far the hardest stop-divorce process there is. This is because there has to be proof between the two parties in the marriage as to who was at fault in relation to the ending of a marriage. These kinds of divorces are those that end rather badly, except if one party admit to being the one at fault. If this is the kind of divorce case that you are going through, then you need to withdraw all statements that have been made, and send the letter to the judge as soon as possible. You will have to provide proof that you and your spouse both agree to stop the divorce process proceedings right away. You can do this through a notarized letter, a video or voice recording of you and your spouse stating that you wish to stop all processes, as well as your attorneys signing the letter as witnesses.
Other than the at-fault divorce, the other kinds of divorce are pretty much the same as that of the no-fault divorce in terms of the cancellation process. Other forms of divorce include the summary divorce, the uncontested divorce, mediated divorce, collaborative divorce, arbitrated divorce, and the contested divorce.
Stopping a divorce may just be the best thing that you can do for your marriage. If you believe that there is still something left there, then the marriage is worth saving. It won’t be easy, and it won’t be quick, but if you and your partner work hard, you will be able to rediscover all the reasons that you were in love, and all the reasons that you have to try and make your marriage work.
