Huma Abedin and convicted sex offender Anthony Weiner signed docs to call off their divorce — but they’re still done … they’re just taking a quieter approach. 

Hillary Clinton‘s trusted aide, Huma, had a divorce hearing scheduled Wednesday morning, but instead submitted docs to nix the divorce case. Both Huma and Weiner signed the docs.

Huma’s attorney, Charles Miller, tells TMZ … “In order to reduce any impact of these proceedings on their child, the parties have decided to attempt to reach a settlement swiftly and privately.”

In other words … they’re going to avoid feuding — in court or in public — and hammer out a divorce settlement privately. They’ll still need a judge to sign off eventually.

As we reported … Huma filed for divorce back in May 2017 following Weiner’s guilty plea for sexting a 15-year-old girl. He’s currently serving a 21-month prison sentence.
