Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez raced to the courthouse last year, trying to beat each other to the punch in filing divorce papers, yet a year later they are poised to dismiss the case and stay married.
We found a legal doc in which the clerk in divorce court sent a notice to both Halle and Olivier, saying they've been asleep at the wheel and done nothing to make the divorce final. The clerk issued an ultimatum ... either do something or the case will be dismissed.
We've spoken with multiple sources, on both Halle and Olivier's side, and they say the same thing. Neither is in a rush to make the divorce final, and they're fine with staying married.
As for why ... we're told Halle isn't convinced she wants a divorce. We're told she still thinks Olivier might change, especially in the anger management department, and if he does she thinks the marriage could work.
Olivier's clearly had anger problems ... the last straw was when he pushed an LAX employee with a baby car seat and got in trouble with the law.
There are other reasons why both Olivier and Halle aren't going through with the divorce. We're told they're getting along great and both are actively involved in parenting both 3-year-old Maceo and 8-year-old Nahla. Although Olivier isn't Nahla's dad, he's still actively involved in her life.
And there's another reason. Halle -- who just turned 50 -- isn't crazy about getting a third divorce. She doesn't think it's good for her, or her kids.
So, we're told the divorce will probably just go away. For now, they're just friends and good parents, but who knows.
