Family Violence in Texas
Our state classifies domestic violence as “family violence" cases, which means the violence can occur between different members of the family, not only just spouses.
People involved in this violent action must be any of the following in order for the charge to be domestic violence:
- Current or former spouses
- Dating couples
- Roommates or housemates
- Couples who share a child in common
The various actions that could be considered domestic violence include the following:
- Causing fear of imminent bodily injury
- Sexual abuse or exploitation
- Emotional abuse
- Neglect, such as depriving spouses, children, or other family members food, a safe shelter, or proper clothing
- Economic abuse, such as taking control of a family member’s bank accounts or investments
- Causing bodily injury to another: hitting, slapping, choking kicking, or using a weapon as a form of physical abuse
- Causing physical contact that could be considered as offensive or provocative
Unlike Texas assault laws, a police officer does not have to witness the domestic violence in order to make an immediate arrest. This means that you could be arrested and charged with the crime of domestic violence based on the word of an angry spouse or out of an act of retaliation. There are many cases in which fraudulent activity results in criminal charges for an innocent person. Attorney Deandra M. Grant understands the embarrassment, fear, and anxiety that you may be experiencing, and you can look to our firm for the legal assistance that you need in your case.
Attorney Grant has many years of experience in defending the rights of criminally accused, and throughout her years of practice she has gained prestigious awards and recognition for her excellent practice. She has received the AV Preeminent® rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, which is the highest rating that an attorney can achieve.
If you are facing criminal charges of domestic violence, then waste no time in contacting our firm for the aggressive representation that you need in your case.
