Houston, TX asked in Family Law for Texas

Q: Is there a way to remove a spouse from being able to make financial decisions and having access to funds in Texas?

If spouse A is making financial decisions that are detrimental to the household and refuses to listen and continues to do things that financially put the family (2 adults and 4 children 18 & younger) at risk, is there a way for spouse B to legally disallow them access to financial institutions? Spouse A works part-time and makes minimal money and rarely contributes to the house, mainly concerned with their spending and rebuilding their credit while fraudulently using spouse B's info. Spouse B works 2 full time jobs and recently discovered that 2 CC's went to collections because spouse A did not make the payments. Instead chose to pay their 12 credit cards instead. Spouse A repeatedly takes money from the main joint account and moves it to a individual account and refuses to share statements and spending with spouse B. Meanwhile every penny spent by spouse B must be accounted for and explained. Spouse A has unknown amount of individual accounts and refuses to release any and all info
