A Kansas separation agreement is a contract between spouses who no longer wish to live as a married couple but do not want to go through a formal divorce.

Although separation agreements allow couples to achieve many of the same ends as divorce, including establishing monthly spousal support and child visitation rules, separation agreements are generally quicker and may allow couples to address religious, cultural, or financial objections to divorce.
