Re: bifurcation

Yes you may separate the property and child issues. A judge must issue orders, and an attorney may draft the petition. Contact me directly.

Re: bifurcation

You have to file a motion to bifurcate. It requires a little legal research and a court appearance. It doesn't require an attorney, but having one makes life much easier.
