After spending nearly two years getting a divorce, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom decided to give their marriage a second chance! Yet, if canceling their split turns out to be a bad idea, an expert EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com Khloe and Lamar will have to start their divorce over from scratch!
Calling off a divorce is a big decision, but it’s one that Khloe Kardashian, 31, and Lamar Odom, 35, think is right for them. Two years after breaking up, Khlomar have decided to stay married, especially after Lamar’s near-fatal accident! However, if they refile for divorce, an expert EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com that they’ll have to get at the back of the line!
Khloe and Lamar officially called off their divorce on Oct. 21, but if they find out that they’re really not meant to be together, whoever files for divorce will “have to pay the filing fees and start all over again with a new case,” Kelly Chang Rickert, ESQ, EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. While Khloe and Lamar signed the papers to finalize their break-up over the summer, they asked the judge to toss out their their case. The judge agreed!
This last-minute decision “happens all the time,” according to Kelly. “People often file out of anger or revenge,” Kelly tells HollywoodLife.com, “but [the couple doesn’t] really want to go through with it. So, they end up just getting it dismissed.” Khloe and Lamar were able to get their case thrown out so quickly because a couple can file for dismissal at “any point” in the process. “If there’s no judgment or any finality to the case, [the dismissal] is done as soon as it’s filed and the [case] comes off the dockets,” says Kelly.
Considering it took Khloe and Lamar nearly two years to almost get a divorce, it could take while if they want to split up again. Khloe first filed in Dec. 2013, and though she tried to save her marriage, it seemed like nothing could help it. After a scary encounter with Lamar, Khloe tried to expedite the process in Aug. 2015 and it looked their marriage was over.
But she was still Lamar’s husband when he fell into a coma after partying at a Nevada brothel and had to make his medical decisions for him while he was comatose. Now that Lamar is awake and on his road to recovery, Khloe will stay by his side — and that means calling off the divorce.
If Khloe restarts the divorce proceedings, she’ll break more than just Lamar’s heart. She’ll leave her fans devastated! After the news that she and L.O. were calling off their split, fans flocked to twitter to celebrate! Some wanted to cry tears of happiness while others were overjoyed with Khloe and Lamar “giving their marriage another chance.”
Do you think Khloe and Lamar will restart their divorce proceedings, HollywoodLifers? Or does this mean they’re back together for good?
