Conciliation

Conciliation refers to actions taken by a judge or the other party to a dissolution of marriage (divorce) or dissolution of civil union case to repair the damages of the marriage or civil union.


If a judge believes there exists the potential for reconciliation, they may order that both parties take part in a conciliation conference to determine if the marriage or union can be repaired. The results of this conference may lead to the judge deny the parties from getting a divorce or dissolving their civil union.
