Texas Separation Agreement

A Texas separation agreement is a contract between spouses that lets them make limited determinations about spousal support and the division of assets before they are divorced. Texas does not recognize legal separation as a distinct status, and couples may also need to complete the divorce process to achieve the full legal division of assets.

Is a Separation Agreement Legal in Texas?

Couples may create agreements between themselves, but because Texas does not recognize legal separation, courts may not enforce all of the terms of these agreements unless they are prepared to settle issues in a pending divorce.
