Family Violence/Assault Serving Families Throughout Austin

Family Violence/Assault in Texas

Difference Between Family Violence & Domestic Violence in Texas

Family violence charges are associated with assault or other types of violent crimes involving loved ones or household members. Since these criminal offenses involve family members, many assume there will be no criminal consequences, specifically if no charges were pressed.

However, if Texas law enforcement believes family violence has occurred, they decide whether to press charges, not the alleged victim. Family violence cases are heard in a special division of the criminal court, which is why having a criminal defense lawyer with experience handling these types of cases is of utmost importance.

The punishments of a family violence/assault conviction include:

  • Jail or prison sentence
  • Fines
  • Restraining orders
  • Loss of custody
  • Loss of gun rights
  • Possible felony charge in the event of a similar offense in the future
  • Immigration consequences

From time to time, loved ones can have disagreements with each other. Sometimes, verbal confrontations can, unfortunately, take a violent turn that results in immediate regret. On other instances, scored significant others falsely accuse their partners of domestic violence to gain an advantage in child custody proceedings or simply for blackmail. But in most cases, law enforcement authorities are called in and arrests are made.
