You Don't Have to Fight these Charge Alone
Domestic abuse in Texas can refer to a wide range of violent behavior. While it typically involves violence between spouses, it can also include child abuse, abuse of an elder, or violence between roommates or partners. Like assault, it can be limited to threats of violence without any physical harm. If the prosecution in such instances can prove intent to cause harm or control through the behavior of the accused, they can secure convictions.

Do I Have Grounds for a Domestic Violence Case?

- Domestic assault: Since battery is folded into assault in the state of Texas, domestic assault charges can still carry steep penalties if convicted. Domestic assault with injury can lead to up to a year in prison as well as a $4,000 fine.
- Elder abuse: This can include emotional, sexual, or physical abuse of an elderly person. Depending on the circumstances, they victim can also file a personal injury claim against the accused.
- Child abuse: These allegations can have a particularly damaging effect on your life. They can arise from simple discipline of a child by their parent or bodily injury.
