Texas divorce FAQ: Can my spouse continue to use our credit cards?

At the beginning of a divorce, most courts enter orders that regulate each party’s use of credit during the divorce. Although a judge won’t prohibit use of credit altogether, the order will require only reasonable spending. This isn’t the time for extravagant purchases. Sometimes a spouse will cancel credit cards prior to the divorce being filed. If there is a question about this, call the credit card company in advance and confirm.
