From my understanding of the laws of Texas, it is a community property state, which means if you purchase a home before the divorce is finalized, she would be entitled to half of it when it did get finalized. Of course as mentioned here, I suggest you consult with your attorney to get the specifics of this.
There are ways around what you are tying to do, however. If you would like more information, please contact me.
It's more than real estate. It's RAYL-Estate!

Texas is a community property state...what's yours is 1/2 hers. I am told with the right wording in a divorce decree this can be overcome but it seems you might be further along in the process, therefore the attorney's advice.
I would welcome the opportunity to assist you with your home purchase when you are ready and maybe a short term lease while you get every thing in place. I can also recommend an attorney in Dallas if you need that.
