What Is a Legal Separation?

In Texas, a legal separation is an order of the court that allows a married couple to live apart while still remaining legally married. A legal separation is not a divorce, but it is an important step in the process of getting divorced. The court will grant a divorce only after the couple meets the requirements of a no-fault divorce (such as living separate and apart for at least one year).

What Are The Benefits of Choosing Legal Separation Over Divorce?

Many couples seek a legal separation because it allows them to obtain legal protections, such as support and property division, without all of the emotional and financial stress of divorce. While a legal separation does not allow a married couple to separate their finances, it does allow both parties to legally separate their personal lives (i.e., they can move out of the marital home and stop sharing a bank account and other personal property).

How Long Does a Legal Separation Take?

While a legal separation can be granted immediately upon the filing of the petition, a judge will not grant a divorce until the one-year separation requirement has been met. This means that the length of a legal separation will depend on how long the couple waited to file for divorce.
