The procedure we go through to stop the legal action depends upon where we are in the process. If the other party has not appeared in the action or filed a Response, we can unilaterally dismiss the action with a Voluntary Non Suit. If the other party has appeared and filed a Response, then the petitioning party cannot just unilaterally dismiss the action. It will take the agreement of the parties to dismiss, by filing an Agreed Order of Voluntary Dismissal.
