Vermont Separation Agreement Template

Updated August 07, 2023

A Vermont separation agreement sets terms regarding property division, spousal support, child custody, and other matters for couples who no longer wish to live together but do not want to get a divorce.

Vermont recognizes separation as a distinct legal status. Obtaining one in the state can be as time-consuming as getting a divorce. But unlike divorce, separation is not final and may have other benefits, including allowing both spouses to remain on an insurance policy.

Is a Separation Agreement Legal in Vermont?

Yes, spouses are able to create separation separation agreements, and can ask a court to grant a legal separation for the same reasons they would seek a divorce. Having a separation agreement prepared reduces the fee charged for a legal separation.
