Bifurcated Divorce

It’s where different parts of the divorce are handled by different courts. For example, in In re Marriage of Peck, 242 Ariz. 345 (App. 2017), the Court of Appeals found that Arizona lacked personal jurisdiction over Wife that is necessary for Arizona to divide marital property, but Arizona had jurisdiction to end the marriage (which requires only that one party be domiciled in Arizona for 90 days). The Court of Appeals ruled, in that case, Arizona could terminate the marriage, but it lacked jurisdiction to divide the property.
