Under Texas family law, in the case of a remarriage, can the current spouse be held responsible for debts incurred by the current spouse and the previous spouse during the course of the first marriage?
Under TX law, a spouse is only responsible for any debt that they personally incur or that their spouse incurs during the time they are married. So if you spouse came into the marriage with debt from a previous marriage it is his/her separate debt that only he/she is responsible for along with the previous spouse. The new spouse is not legally liable for that debt.
