It's now official: Billy Ray Cyrus filed court papers to legally call off his divorce from his wife of 17 years, Tish.

"The parties are attempting a reconciliation," stated the papers, filed in Williamson County, Tennessee and obtained by TMZ.com.

The petition was filed March 11, and signed by a judge.

Cyrus announced in an appearance on The View that he is no longer splitting from Tish, Miley Cyrus' mother.

"I wanted to put my family back together," he said.

In the same interview, he backtracked on his statements against Disney and Hannah Montana, which he had blamed for "destroying my family" in an earlier interview with GQ.

"I love Hannah Montana. I love Disney. That didn't tear my family apart," Cyrus said, adding that he recently reconciled with Miley. "Now fame, fame is a different animal, you've got to be careful with that thing because it can ... all things considered, hey, it's all good."
