5 True/False questions
connivance → a court declaration that a validly entered marriage is dissolved
uncontested → Legally independent of one's parent or legal guardian.
in forma pauperis → as a poor person (allowing the waiver of court fees.)
Bifurcated Divorce → A case in which the dissolution of the marriage--the divorce itself--is tried separately from other issues in the marriage such as the division of property. Suppose, for example, that the parties have a bitter and complicated dispute over business assets and pension rights. Rather than waiting until these issues are resolved, the court may have the power to dissolve the marriage now in one proceeding and then resolve the economic issues in a separate proceeding. This allows the parties to get on with their lives (e.g. to marry someone else) much sooner than would otherwise be possible. A bifurcated divorce is similar to a divisible divorce in that both tell us that the divorce has separate parts. A divisible divorce means that not all parts are entitled to full faith and credit. A bifurcated divorce mean that the parts are resolved in separate proceedings.
