Q: Texas wife pays all bills and her husband name is only on title and not mortgage and we have one kid so wife keeps home
A: Sorry, there's no question here, only a statement.
If the house was bought during the marriage, it's presumably community property. If that's the case, it doesn't matter whose name is on the title or mortgage and regardless of who "pays the bills," the property is subject to division in a divorce. If she is awarded the property in the divorce, other community property will likely be awarded to the husband, in order to equalize the division of the community property.
