Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
When the divorce is bifurcated, the court sets hearing dates for the divorce and then the property division. The court would set a date for submission of all financial reports prior to the property division hearings which would be after the divorce is heard and decided. So this is up to the court as to when the financials are required.

My question is: Does that mean that division of marital financials would be included to be divided until the date of the bifurcation or until the date of trial
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 8 months ago.
Thank you for your reply.
It means the division of marital assets will not happen until after the divorce hearing. The financials would be included when the division of assets portion of the trial takes place.
