Incorporated but not merged

A Property Settlement Agreement may be referenced in a Consent Decree by using the phrase “incorporated but not merged.” This means the Court is adopting the Property Settlement Agreement as a final agreement between the parties, but the Property Settlement Agreement retains its contractual status separate from the Decree.
