I'm Not Sure I Want a Divorce. Can I Get a Legal Separation in Texas?

Texas does not have a mechanism for granting a legal separation; either you are legally married, or you are divorced. Even though there is no legal status known as separation, you and your spouse can enter into an agreement regarding the terms of your separation, such as how you will divide property. This can evolve into a settlement agreement for your divorce, should you ultimately decide to pursue that.
