No, your spouse can’t unilaterally stop your divorce petition or demand that the court dismiss your case, but a motivated spouse does have the ability to slow your divorce down dramatically, sometimes dragging it out for years.
When that’s the situation, you should seek experienced negotiators who can drill down to the real issues your spouse is holding onto and find creative solutions to resolve the conflicts.
When a spouse is angry and has committed to not moving on, and preventing you from doing so, your options may feel limited.
It’s important to have the caliber of representation that can continue to push the divorce forward, even if your spouse is determined to hold you hostage for as long as possible.
