Once a family court recognizes that a separation exists, the clock is moving toward divorce. In order to stop the court’s march toward a divorce proceeding, an additional court action must be filed that negates the actions of the first. That said, if both parties agree that the divorce action should come to end, a “Motion to dismiss” can be filed with the court. The motion shows the court that both parties agree that the previous action is no longer appropriate given a change in circumstances.

If you have just been living apart you may decide to give the marriage another chance. Do not proceed with the divorce unless you are completely sure it is what you want, but don’t let fear of the uncertain future keep you in a bad marriage. Nothing is finalised until the divorce has gone before a judge, so speak to your spouse and your lawyer if you have doubts about the wisdom of the divorce.

Use the trial separation period to examine if you should really continue with the marriage. If you feel that core issues between both parties have been solved (or at least improved), then there is hope. However, if nothing has improved and only one partner shows interest in working on the relationship, then it's really not worth it. Marriage is a two-way process - trust, love, compatibility and respect are needed for a marriage to thrive. If your marriage lacks these elements, then it is time to seriously consider a divorce.
