6/21/2011 5:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" star cited "irreconcilable differences" when she filed for divorce back in November.

Now -- 7 months later -- Baumbach has filed his response, but Baumbach's rep tells us there's still a chance of reconciliation and the only reason the response was filed was because the judge felt it had been dormant too long.

Leigh and Baumbach -- who directed "The Squid and the Whale" -- have a 1-year-old son.

Leigh, who's repped by disso queen Laura Wasser, is asking for joint custody.  Ditto Baumbach, who is repped by Daniel Jaffe.

Will Jennifer decide to become a single white female once again?

Stay tuned.
