It is absolutely possible for people to reconcile with each other in the middle of divorce proceedings. It is not common, but our office has seen this happen. Divorce is a difficult time for any relationship, and any good family law attorney recognizes a couple’s chance at reconciliation and encourages them to seek therapy or other counseling in order to salvage the marriage.
Do not feel apprehensive about seeking reconciliation with your spouse; share your thoughts with your attorney. Courts are willing to accommodate a couple’s attempt to reconcile and will put a case on hold for up to several years to allow the couple the time they require. In Illinois, the judge can also order a conciliation conference and/or counseling in cases where reconciliation is possible.
Please feel free to contact George Pecherek for a free consultation if you have any questions about divorce or reconciliation with your spouse.
