Dakota Fanning will not be a (grown) child of divorce after all ... her pops just yanked his divorce docs.

Dakota's father, Steven Fanning, is dismissing his divorce petition from Heather, his wife of almost 27 years. 

Sources connected with the family tell us Steven and Heather will try to work their differences out. They do not want to give up on the marriage.

We broke the story ... Steven filed for the split late last week, citing irreconcilable differences. He did not ask for spousal support from Heather, and custody of the kids wasn't going to be an issue since both Dakota and her sister, Elle, are adults.

Good luck.
