Written Agreement

Sec. 7.006.  AGREEMENT INCIDENT TO ENDING YOUR MARRIAGE.  (a)  To promote amicable settlement of disputes in a suit for ending a marriage, the spouses may enter into a written agreement concerning the division of the property and the liabilities of the spouses and maintenance of either spouse.  The agreement may be revised or repudiated before rendition of the dissolution unless the agreement is binding under another rule of law.

(b)  If the court finds that the terms of the written agreement are just and right, those terms are binding on the court.  If the court approves the agreement, the court may set forth the agreement in full or incorporate the agreement by reference in the final decree.

(c)  If the court finds that the terms of the written agreement in a divorce or annulment are not just and right, the court may request the spouses to submit a revised agreement or may set the case for a contested hearing.
