What is a Bifurcated Divorce?

Given the number of issues that must be decided in a divorce, such as child support, child custody, spousal support (alimony), and division of assets, the divorce process can take a long time. If you and your spouse are unable to agree on some aspects of your divorce, but can agree on others, you or your spouse may be interested in filing a request for Bifurcation with the court. This is a process that can either be stipulated to (agreed with) by the two parties, or it can be made by one party over the objection of the other.

While the best way to protect your investments in divorce starts long before the divorce ever becomes an issue, i.e., through a prenuptial agreement, trust, estate planning, or other pre-divorce strategy; many people do not have such plans in place. In the absence of a pre-divorce plan, the burden is on you to prove that your investments are separate property not subject to division.
