Can My Spouse Make Me Pay Their Divorce Attorney Fees in Texas?

Yes, in Texas, a judge may order one spouse to pay the other's divorce attorney fees in certain circumstances. The Texas judge will consider the financial status of both parties and may order the higher-earning spouse to pay the other spouse's fees if they make more money than the other. 

The judge may also consider if one spouse has made the divorce more difficult or costly, such as hiding assets, not complying with discovery requests, or defying the judge's orders.

Can My Spouse Take My Inheritance in a Divorce in Texas?

An inheritance received during the marriage in Texas is generally not up for grabs in a divorce. Since Texas is a community property state, most assets are split equitably during a divorce. However, inheritances are considered separate property, not marital property, and are not subject to division.
