Miley’s Parents: Billy Ray & Tish May Be Calling Off Divorce! Exclusive!

HollywoodLife.com has uncovered a significant development in the Cyrus divorce plan that could mean the couple has decided to stay together. Good news for Miley?

Billy Ray Cyrus filed for divorce from Tish Cyrus Oct. 26 — that’s 38 days ago. But by Tennessee law, Tish has to be served with the papers within 30 days — and we’ve learned she hasn’t been served yet, which could mean that the couple has decided to stay together.

Clerks at the Chancery Court Of Williamson County tell us that once the divorce is filed, there is a strict 30-day time period from day of filing for the respondent/defendant (in this case, Tish) to be served with divorce papers.

As of today (Dec. 3), it’s been 38 days. Two clerks tell HollywoodLife.com that there is no notice of service to Tish on file at the court and that when one party isn’t served within 30 days, it typically means the divorce is off.

“It’s highly unusual for a lawyer to miss a basic procedural filing deadline,” says Stacey Schneider, New York City attorney and author of He Had It Coming: How to Outsmart Your Husband and Win Your Divorce. “Tish, if she wanted to, could move to dismiss the divorce complaint based on a defect for lack for service.”

We spoke to another legal expert who tells us if the time frame has lapsed and the Cyruses still want to proceed with the divorce, they would need to re-file.

Billy Ray‘s rep tells us: “This is absolutely untrue. There has been no change as to the filing of the divorce proceedings.”

THIS was NOT a publicity stunt people come to differences at times and think they cant get past them until they weigh in on whats to lose! In there case I believe they loved each other too much to split the sheets and has nothing to do with Miley! she’s 18 and an adult now and lives her own life I am sure!!!

I think it was just a publicity stunt to get them more popular I bet they never even had any intentions to get divorced in the first place. Furthermore since they announced it have you noticed all the attention has been off of Miley and on them hhhmmmm makes you wonder why doesn’t it.

I wish them all the best. If, for their healths, getting a divorce is the way to go, then they should get a divorce. If they can work it out, then they should work it out.

But sometimes, a divorce is the best action, even if the married couple are still friends. I don’t know if the Cyrus’ are still friends, or if they hate each other, but as I said – I wish them the best.
