Reconciliation – ‘getting back together’

Printer-friendly version

If you are applying for divorce based on one year’s separation, you and your spouse can start living together again for up to 90 continuous days if you are trying to get back together, and this will not affect the one year separation period. This is called trying to ‘reconcile.’

If you still decide to get divorced before the 90 days are up, your divorce will proceed as if you had never moved back in together. However, if you reconcile for more than 90 days in a row before deciding to proceed with your divorce, you will have to start counting your one year separation period over again.
