The Texas Pattern Jury Charges—Family & Probate special supplement, affecting PJC 218.1–218.3, was made necessary by the 2020 amendments to Tex. R. Civ. P. 277, which require specific findings in parent-child termination proceedings rather than broad-form submissions and which supersede Texas Department of Human Services v. E.B., 802 S.W.2d 647 (Tex. 1990). It also includes new comments about modifications to custodianship orders in PJCs 217.1–217.3 and 217.5. The comments were added to reflect the holdings of a recent case, In re C.J.C., 603 S.W.3d 804 (Tex. 2020) (orig. proceeding). Finally, a revised alternate jury question for will contests brought by interested parties was also added in PJC 250.3.

Revised PJC 218.1–218.3 are provided in their entirety in this supplement. Only the amended paragraphs in the Comments to PJC 217.1–217.3, 217.5, and 250.3 are included.
