Elder Law Handbook overview
This handbook helps senior citizens and their families learn about issues facing seniors. Older adults should know their legal rights and how to enforce those rights. The handbook is in a question-and-answer format, divided into elder law topics. All elder law issues cannot be addressed in one handbook. But it may give you an overview of your rights and remedies.
This handbook is based on Texas law and is meant to inform you, not advise you. This is a general summary of the laws (as of 2019). Exceptions may exist. Talk to a lawyer about your situation.
