The Texas Family Code Online

This website includes the full text of the Texas Family Code as amended by the 2013 biennial Texas legislature, except that Title 3 (Juvenile Justice Code) has not been updated from the 2011 legislature because this site is primarily used by Texas family law attorneys.


The Table of Contents (to the left) hyperlinks to the six Titles of the Code. Within each Title, at the end of each section [Contents] links to the Table of Contents for that Title.

The Code has been taken directly from the Texas Legislature Online website.
