This document contains the Texas Estates Code and the Texas Trusts Code (and related Property Code provisions) showing all changes made by the Regular Session of the 2019 Texas Legislature. The changes, most of which take effect on September 1, 2019, are shown in red-lined format for easy comparison of the prior and new versions of the statutes. Also included are charts converting Probate Code to Estates Code sections and Estates Code to Probate Code sections.

I have included commentary entitled Statutes in Context to many sections. These annotations provide background information, explanations, and citations to key cases which should assist you in identifying the significance of the statutes and how they operate.

Keywords: Texas Estates Code, Texas Property Code, Texas, Wills, Probate, Trusts, Estate Administration, Guardianship, Estate Planning
