Yes, you can refile at any time. To get started you will need to file an Original Petition for divorce, pay the filing fee, and make arrangements for him to to be served, or have him sign a Waiver of Citation if he agrees to do so.

You can file a Petition for dissolution at any time. If you dismissed the Petition before, I would suggest that you consult with an attorney. Usually a party cannot exert the same type of pressure that s/he did on a spouse. Additionally, if there is an issue of your spouse escalating, you should discuss that with an attorney so you two might formulate a plan for your protection.
