Abstract

This article discusses recent judicial developments (last half of 2019) relating to the Texas law of intestacy, wills, estate administration, trusts, and other estate planning matters. The discussion of each case concludes with a moral, i.e., the important lesson to be learned from the case. By recognizing situations that have led to time consuming and costly litigation in the past, estate planners can reduce the likelihood of the same situations arising with their clients.

Keywords: Texas, estate planning, wills, trusts, probate, estate administration, intestacy
