Can I Divorce My Spouse in California Before We Have A Final Agreement or Trial?
Yes, you can divorce your spouse in California before you resolve all the issues in your case. Until a judgment is entered in your divorce case, you cannot legally remarry.
However, in cases where the issues are heavily contested, it it possible to seek a “Bifurcation of Marital Status” wither by agreement or court order whereby the Court separates the issue of marital status from the rest of the case, restores the parties to the status of single persons, and reserves the remaining issues for further determination. Bifurcation of marital status enables the parties to remarry while they continue to negotiate and litigate the remaining issues of their divorce.
