```I hope I have undestood well what you want.

Anyway, consider the following list of (pseudo-) random data
(everything is converted to InputForm via Shift+Ctrl+I)

lst = Table[{i, Random[]}, {i, 20}]
{{1, 0.7398002254042386}, {2, 0.48351136238411035}, {3,
0=2E6990879133175131}, {4, 0.9079168297300548}, {5,
0=2E6053785686483808},
{6, 0.10045411927452741}, {7, 0.7367259846597651}, {8,
0=2E4295409119605975}, {9, 0.677755292547973}, {10,
0=2E5396708362542667},
{11, 0.6683277939079364}, {12, 0.7456532011620224}, {13,
0=2E861128274213798}, {14, 0.9028288270968751},
{15, 0.35696122270866637}, {16, 0.47048545503420414}, {17,
0=2E30724914917473006}, {18, 0.5872985438246565},
{19, 0.5365153020570516}, {20, 0.7535043198811145}}

A possible plot without splitting it could as follows:

ListPlot[lst, PlotJoined ->
True, PlotStyle -> {Green,
AbsoluteDashing[{2, 3}]}, Frame -> True, Axes -> False,
PlotRange -> {-0.02, 1.02}, Epilog -> {Magenta,
AbsolutePointSize, Point /@ lst}]

Supposing you have to split in the middle of the list you could work
as follows

lst1 = Take[lst, 10];
lst2 = Take[lst, -10];

Block[{\$DisplayFunction = Identity}, gr1 = ListPlot[lst1, PlotJoined -
> True, PlotStyle -> {Red, AbsoluteDashing[{3, 5}]},
Frame -> True, Axes -> False, PlotRange -> {-0.02, 1.02}, Epilog -
> {Red, AbsolutePointSize, Point /@ lst}];
gr2 = ListPlot[lst2, PlotJoined -> True, PlotStyle -> {Blue,
AbsoluteDashing[{4, 3}]}, Frame -> True, Axes -> False,
PlotRange -> {-0.02, 1.02}, Epilog -> {Blue,
AbsolutePointSize, Point /@ lst}]; ]
Show[{gr1, gr2}]

Of course there are also other alternatives and you can modify as you
wish the look of your plot.
