Legal Separation

Award-winning counsel to direct your future!

Unlike most states, Texas does not currently have laws in place governing legal separation. However, that does not mean it is completely out of the question for couples who are unready to commit to the finality of a divorce. A divorce attorney from Schneider Law Firm can work with you to create a viable solution for you and your spouse.

Our firm believes that every client deserves personalized legal counsel, regardless of their circumstances. We will take the time to assess your case and guide you toward an outcome that will positively impact your future. You are not alone during this time!

What is the alternative to a legal separation?

Without legal separation, many couples think their only alternative is to turn to a divorce. Fortunately, this is not always the case. Informal separations offer nearly all the benefits of the legal separations that other states offer. The only drawback is that you will not be fully protected by choosing to go the informal route. This means that if one spouse changes their mind, any documents you wrote up prior to your separation will not be honored by the court.

The right attorney can determine the best method to ensure that your informal separation is successful.

Some of the benefits of this scenario include:

  • The time and space to evaluate whether you really want a divorce
  • Less commitment than the definiteness of a divorce
  • More freedom to talk through conflicts with your spouse

A common term in Texas for a separation agreement is a “partition and exchange agreement,” meaning that you can transfer communal marital property to one spouse.
