Is he being sued under his name or is his company or former employer?
If the lawsuit are on his name, that could be an issue,

Since TX is a community property states,
property only in your name can be attached,
Community property consists of the property, other than separate property, acquired by either spouse during marriage. This is true even if only one spouse has possession of the property. Just because one spouse is named on the title, deed, or account; one person receives the asset as payment for personal services (ie: salary); or the asset will not be paid until a future date (ie: retirement) do not make it separate property. There is a presumption that all property possessed by either spouse is community property
