Customer Question
Can my exhusband sign...

Can my exhusband sign a lease contract addressed to me and make it legally binding to me. I was 3 years divorced when he did that and had lift out of state.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Texas

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

My exhusband has signed a lease, without my involvement after our divorce and did not pay his rent. The owner sues him for post due rent and tries to come after me.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Besides that had married and lived with another woman at that property, no
