At the Court where you filed the divorce petition and ask a clerk for forms for divorce dismissal.
Complete the divorce dismissal form. If your spouse has answered the divorce petition that you will need to get consent to proceed. If no answer to the petition has been made then you can file the dismissal without your spouses consent.
If your spouse has answered you will need her signature on the forms. File the dismissal with the Court. The dismissal takes effect as soon as the clerk files your paperwork.
Please accept my answer with a rating of 3 or better so I may get credit for my response. If you have follow up questions please ask. Please note that paying the deposit does not cause funds to be disbursed until you rate my response (3 or greater).
Thank you Jack.
My spouse has responded through his attorney; can I still get it dismissed since he has not counter sued? Also, I looked up the Local Rules for my county and it says that I will need:
1) A motion in writing accompanied by
2) a certificate of service, and
3) a proposed order granting the relief sought on a separate page.
I have no idea what these are and what words to write. Will you please help me as I need to file these in the morning before his attorney counter sues and I will be forced to go to trial unprepared.
I am looking for a template you might use in Texas. I may have to refer you to another States template that you can "modify" by substituting Texas for that state and your county for the county. The form of the motion in terms of the caption (the part that identified the parties and the motion need to look similar to your divorce petition.
If you would have asked the clerk for the forms you might have gotten the Court's packet. Sometime the forms can be found on the Courts website.
Is this something you want me to pursue for you. I see that you have not either paid for or otherwise compensated prior attorneys for assisting you a couple of questions. I cannot do since it is time consuming without assurance of compensation through rating of answers.
Jack, please pursue. I paid for the unlimited questions so not sure how you are compensated? I just finished rating the last answer I received from a general law attorney. Would really like your help. I am in Fort Bend County, TX and have researched their online library but cannot find a way to access these specific documents.
I will bonus with your help to get the right documents prepared for submission. Thank you.
I have found a Washington court forms for dismissing a divorce. If you use the Caption the top part of your divorce complaint that identifies the cause number and the parties in place of the caption that Washington uses you should be close enough. On the signature part you only need your signature line on the motion.
On the order for dismiss you need nothing below the judges signature.
The forms in the packet are the 2 forms immediately after page 14, the motion, and the order. You will also need a certificate of service ( they call it mailing). Again modify the caption and it should be good enough.
Here is the link: http://www.washingtonlawhelp.org/files/C9D2EA3F-0350-D9AF-ACAE-BF37E9BC9FFA/attachments/392736AF-E537-D597-3214-F8E7FA2EB013/3219en.pdf
I f you don't have a caption here is a,link to a Texas divorce form use the same format for the Caption as on this form, include the titles Motion to Dismiss Divorce Complaint; and Order to Dismiss Divorce Complaint
If you have question just text me. Unfortunately I cannot find a Texas set of forms. But we can tailor Washington's Just ask questions for waht you do not understand. I can review yur forms after you tget them completed.
Thank you so much. Would you believe that all the three documents I need to dismiss my case are in a ready to print form that I obtained from a very hard to find government website?!: http://texaslawhelp.org
Unbelievable. Check this out…
And thank you for your willingness to help:)
