Mississippi Separation Agreement Template

Updated November 23, 2022

A Mississippi separation agreement is a contract between spouses that sets the terms of how certain rights and obligations will be assigned when they no longer wish to live together as a married couple.

Mississippi does not recognize separation as a distinct legal status. Couples may create contracts that set out terms regarding child custody, division of property, and more, but it is not clear that these will be enforceable outside of a divorce proceeding if the couple disagrees. Mississippi recognizes separate maintenance, an alternative to divorce in which a couple remains married, but a judge can order the payment of spousal and child support.
