Domestic Violence Protecting & Defending the Rights of the Accused

Bryan, TX Domestic Violence Defense Attorney

Texas Family Assault & Violence Punishment

In Texas, domestic violence is referred to as "assault against a family member". As such, it is a serious offense that carries severe penalties. Domestic assault in Texas extends to spouses, ex-spouses, children, any other household member, or anyone you have or have had an intimate relationship with, such as a dating partner, former dating partner, or person with whom you have had a child.

These charges may be brought against you when you:

  • Intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly physically harm the other person;
  • Intentionally or knowingly threaten the other person with physical harm; or
  • Intentionally or knowingly cause physical contact with the other person that is offensive or will provoke him or her.

Family assault is generally charged as a Class A misdemeanor, carrying penalties of up to a year in jail and/or fines of up to $4,000. Along with this, you may be subject to a restraining order prohibiting you from any contact with your accuser, which can impact child custody and visitation or force you to leave your home. Furthermore, if you have any prior convictions, the charge can be elevated to a third-degree felony with more serious penalties.

If serious bodily injury occurred or you threatened the alleged victim with a dangerous weapon, you will likely face aggravated domestic assault resulting in a second-degree felony charge.
