There are no Texas separation laws. In other words, a separation is not legally-binding. If you are dealing with a complicated case and require legal assistance, a divorce lawyer at Warren & Migliaccio may be able to help.
The state of Texas is considered a community property state. This means that if you are a married couple and you decide to live apart, your property cannot be separated. This includes your house, income, children, and so on.
The only way to legally separate your property and decide issues such as child custody and support, or who gets the house, is to go through the divorce process. The court will then decide on those matters.
A separation can help figure out if a marriage is savable. It is a time to think about the direction you are going, how it will impact the children, your finances, and so much more. But since Texas does not recognize separation in its laws as a legal condition, you cannot enforce the separation of property. Family law can be a very complicated area, which is why you may require legal representation.
