Maine Separation Agreement Template

Updated August 07, 2023

A Maine separation agreement is a legal document that allows married couples to live apart without pursuing a full divorce. Separation agreements let spouses set rules on alimony, child support, and property division (much like a divorce).

In Maine, separation agreements are available to couples that “desire to live apart for a period in excess of 60 continuous days.”

Is a Separation Agreement Legal in Maine?

Yes, couples may agree to petition a court for a decree of judicial separation that settles disposition of property, spousal support, and parental rights and responsibilities.
