How can you stop a divorce from being completed if both parties

This answer was rated:

How can you stop a divorce from being completed if both parties agree to get back together? The FL-180 has been issued and the final date is Dec 16, 2012.
Hello,
.
Thank you for using JA. If a person wants to dismiss the case before the judgment is finalized, the plaintiff can file a Form CIV-110 Request for Dismissal and Form CIV-120 Notice of Entry of Dismissal and Proof of Service.

So my wife will have to submit these to the court and it should end the divorce? She is the one who filed the papers to start with and what needs to be filed in to stop?
Yes, the party who filed for divorce would have to submit them before any judgment is final. Once submitted, it would result in the tentative judgment being dismissed and the divorce would not be finalized.

Thank you for your help it is greatly appreciated. Just a few more questions these forms are good in any county in California? and no other paperwork is needed? And it would cancel the FL-180 court order that is in place for now?
Yes, they are generic CA forms good in any county. The petitioner actually fills in their own county.
.
No, just those two forms are all that are needed.
.
And yes, as long as the judgment is not final, it will dismiss it.

On the form question number one. What do we fill in for the request?
I would put "with prejudice" which means that it can't be reinstated and would have to start all over again should either party change their mind. Then I would put the "entire action of all parties and all causes of action" so it dismisses everything that anyone filed.
