Domestic violence is the intentional or reckless infliction of physical or sexual injury against a family member or other individual with whom you have a relationship. If you have been charged with assault against a spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, child, parent or sibling, it is important to consult with an experienced Texas domestic violence defense lawyer as soon as possible.
If you have previously been convicted of family violence, a second charge is a felony in Texas, and you can face substantial fines and imprisonment. If you are facing a second charge of family violence or assault, you need an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.Emergency Protective Orders
After a family violence arrest, the court may issue an emergency protective order prohibiting you from contact with the victim. You will not even be able to be within a certain distance of the victim, and you may be prevented from entering your own home. Our criminal law attorneys can assist you in seeking to lift or modify an emergency protective order to prevent you from facing additional criminal charges.
Family violence cases may involve:
- Physical assault
- Sexual abuse
- Child abuse
- Parental abuse
- Spousal abuse
- Girlfriend or boyfriend abuse
To be charged with assault, there does not need to be visible evidence such as bruises or blood. The claimed victim must only assert that he or she was hurt. Many family violence cases involve mutual involvement in the dispute or false allegations, especially in divorce cases. Take immediate legal action to protect your rights.Contact Us Today for a Free Consultation
