I'm not a Texas attorney, and I don't know all of the facts of your case.  For firm advice, you need a full review from a lawyer in your area.  One place to look for counsel is our website, http://attorneypages.com

In most states, there isn't any specific form that's needed for an agreement dividing household items and other personal property.  In some cases, it's done with a list of everything, showing who gets what, or two lists, one for what each person is getting.  If there's really no problem at all and some trust left (or the property has already been removed by the people), sometimes the agreement just says that the personal property has been divided up and each person will keep what they have;  sometimes, that language is used with a small number of exceptions, things yet to be turned over.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
