Missouri Separation Agreement Template

Updated August 07, 2023

A Missouri separation agreement is a legal document that married couples can use to establish their rights regarding marital property, alimony, child support, and custody.

Unlike obtaining a divorce, a couple that is legally separated remains married under Missouri law, and legal separation can be a good option for couples who feel they may later get back together. Separation agreements can also later be used as the basis for a divorce decree.

Is a Separation Agreement Legal in Missouri?

Yes, couples can create separation agreements with binding terms, except that a court may modify terms regarding child support, custody and visitation.
