Reconciliation Agreements

Reconciliation agreements are legal documents signed by both parties during their marriage.  The parties have seriously discussed the possibility of a divorce or even filed for divorce.  However, they have agreed to attempt reconciliation for a period of months.  During that time, they agree not to pursue a divorce.  If reconciliation is not successful, then this document is used as the agreement in the divorce proceedings.  Reconciliation agreements often detail how property will be distributed, as well as indicate whether one spouse will be granted support or if a spouse has waived the right to alimony.  They may also dictate the responsibilities of both parties during the reconciliation period.
