A Reconciliation/Dismissal is when parties to a domestic relations action work out their differences and decide to remain together as a family unit. All court actions will terminate. Since what you're doing is actually dismissing the current suit, if you do so without prejudice (which means either of you can refile), you could very well be able to refile when or if you please in the future.

Again, I don't believe you have a limit on when you have to refile. And that should make sense because what if you reconciled for 4 years and it didn't work out or 2 months and it didn't work out? You should be able to refile if/when you determine the reconciliation was a failure.
