What are ramifications, if any, to signing a bifurcation of status in California?

It matters nothing who filed first. Sounds like your ex wants the divorce done without delaying it due to division of any assets and debts. If you agree to a status decision then you are a single person but the assets and debts will still need to be divided. But are there any issues of support - child and/or spousal? Have any pension plans been joined that must be joined? I really need more information on this to assist. Why dont' you have your own attorney/
It’s very common, after I bifurcation, for the property issues to languish. You’re the one with the property so it probably won’t hurt you if that just takes forever to be dealt with. But bear in mind that at some point you’ll want to retire and it will have to be dealt with.
This is general advice. You are anonymous. If you PM me i won’t know what it’s about.
It basically means that you can remarry as you will no longer be married. Then you will need to finalize a Judgment relating to the division of property and support if any.
