What Is Family Violence in Texas?
Family violence is broken down into three separate categories in Texas: domestic assault, aggravated domestic assault, and continuous violence in a domestic situation.
You can be charged with a domestic violence charge when the alleged victim is a(n):
- Foster child
- Foster parent
- Other parent of your child in an unmarried relationship
- Family member related by blood, marriage, or adoption
- Person with whom you live or date or have previously dated
Consequences of a Conviction
These charges are based on a threat of imminent bodily harm, actually causing bodily harm, or creating some type of offensive or provocative physical contact against the other person. It is imperative that you have help from an experienced team of criminal defense lawyers if you are to protect your future.
A first offense is generally charged as a Class A misdemeanor. A subsequent offense is charged as third-degree felony. Penalties for the former include up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000. Third-degree felony charges carry penalties of 2 to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Offenses involving deadly weapons generally carry heavier penalties.
