Kim Zolciak & Kroy Biermann Reportedly Halt Divorce Proceedings
It appears that Kim Zolciak, 45, and Kroy Biermann, 37, have settled on working out their marriage rather than being apart. Newly filed court documents reportedly outline Kim’s request to dismiss her divorce petition, per TMZ.
TMZ reports that Kroy also filed to dismiss. However, PEOPLE reports that his dismissal is still in the works but incoming, per his lawyer’s comment to Entertainment Tonight.
“Yes, parties are dismissing divorce action and reconciling,” Attorney Marlys Berstrom told ET.

The apparent reconciliation comes about two months after the couple separated on April 30–the date Zolciak listed in her petition. However, they both officially filed divorce petitions in May. At the time, Kim’s divorce docs claimed their marriage was “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.”
They both had reportedly requested sole physical custody of their four minor kids. Kroy also requested sole legal custody.
Then, days before submitting the dismissal, Kim and Kroy gathered their youngest children for a church outing. Footage shows the pair alongside their four biological children, Kroy Jagger (KJ), Kash Kade, Kaia Rose, and Kane Ren.
For context, about two years after Zolciak and Kroy married in November 2011, the former NFL linebacker adopted Kim’s daughters, Brielle and Ariana. Following news of the divorce dismissal requests, 21-year-old Ariana posted a selfie on her Instagram Story, captioned, “God is so good.”
According to PEOPLE, the Superior Court of Fulton County granted Kim a “dismissal without prejudice of answer and counterclaim.” However, she retained the right to refile at a later date.
“They’re getting along and calling off the divorce. They’re trying to make it work for the kids,” a source told PEOPLE.
Summary Of Kim Zolciak & Kroy Biermann’s Brief Divorce Proceedings
Leading up to their reconciliation, things seemed grim for the couple. Kroy and Kim’s personal business was thrown into the spotlight–from a reported IRS debt totaling over $1 million to defamatory accusations against each other.
Both parties documented some of their claims against each other in legal documents previously obtained by TMZ. Zolciak alleged Kroy has a marijuana-smoking habit that concerns her for their children’s safety. She requested that her then-estranged husband submit to a five-panel hair follicle drug screen.
Meanwhile, the former athlete claimed his wife has an online gambling and games of chance “compulsion.” He added that her alleged habit caused financial distress to their family and impacted her ability to mother their kids.
Kroy requested Kim be ordered to undergo a psych evaluation to uncover possible “underlying mental health issues like depression, anxiety, narcissistic personality disorder, bipolar disorder or ADHD.”
Despite filing for divorce, Kim indicated they had continued sharing the same household in Georgia.
As of Friday evening, the couple has not addressed the dismissal on social media.
