Reconciliation After Divorce

Pursuing Reconciliation in Mississippi

Working as a Jackson divorce attorney for 40 years, Mark Chinn has seen it all. He has worked with clients in the most contentious of divorces and has helped clients on friendly terms reach workable agreements without resorting to litigation. He has also helped with reconciliation. In fact, this is an important part of his practice, as he values marriage and believes it should be protected if possible. If you are interested in pursuing reconciliation and protecting your marriage, Mark Chinn can offer insight regarding the legal repercussions of this approach so you can be sure your interests are well-protected.

Divorce reconciliation may carry legal consequences, particularly in fault states like Mississippi, where divorce may be granted on the basis of fault (adultery, abandonment, insanity, etc.). At Chinn & Associates, we can make sure you utilize the tools at your disposal when reconciling with your spouse. We can make sure your rights are protected.

Why Should I Consider Reconciliation?

Even when a spouse has been guilty of marital fault, or a marriage has gone through the wringer, spouses may wish to reconcile and stay together. The primary reasons we have seen for reconciliation are:

  • Spouses who wish to protect the relationship they have invested so much of themselves in to create. Some couples have spent most of their adult lives together and do not want to see their marriage fail.
  • Spouses who have children and want to see their children raised in a two-parent home.
  • Spouses who have spiritual, moral, or religious reasons to protect their marriage.

When spouses decide upon reconciliation, they must truly apply themselves to this. They must put their marriage first and must be willing to truly forgive any past transgressions. They must be willing to be open and honest with one another to resolve any issues that may arise, and they may wish to consider counseling. An experienced marriage counselor can help spouses adopt the right attitude and employ strategies to handle any conflicts to rebuild their marriage.
