Resolved Question:

what does it mean when a defendant files a motion to dismiss and the planiff in the divorce agrees because they have become medically not well and so they agree to the motion. Is that mean the plantiff's court orders are all null and void? can you re-file? does the defendant have the right to move back into the home?

It appears your question on this issue was answered in your first question. Do you still need assistance with this question? Thanks.

I was just wondering whether or not case is finally over when you file a motion to dismiss in a divorce or does it mean it is frozen in time and you can reopen it whenever you want.
Expert:  Attorney & Mediator replied 9 years ago.
If the judge has approved the motion to dismiss, then yes the case is over and all issues addressed in that hearing are no longer valid. It is not frozen in time.

You would need to restart the process all over again with a new petition for divorce.
