I live in the state of CA, and have filed for a dissolution. Respondent did not file a response, so I've requested a default divorce and we both have filed and served each other with the disclosures and created a marital settlement together. However, last month, my paperwork was sent back to me with the court stating that any stand-alone default divorce must be accompanied by a "signed order for bifurcation." What does this mean?
