Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I am so sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately, Texas law is pretty clear that property one owns before the marriage is only that person's property. However, I still think you have a strong basis to seek spousal support and repayment of the money you put towards the home. You are entitled to some of his income that he earned during the marriage, any savings or retirement accounts. I strongly suggest you meet with a family law attorney who can walk you through the steps.
