Assault/Family Violence

Accused Of Assault Or Family Violence?

Charges of criminal assault usually involve persons who know one another. Most criminal assault cases involve family members such as:

  • Spouses
  • Parents
  • Cousins
  • Brothers and sisters
  • Children
  • Couples who are dating or living together

With conflict amongst persons involved in close relationships, emotions can run high with tempers flaring. In the heat of the moment words fly out and the police are contacted by one or by both parties.

When A Telephone Call To 911 Makes A Private Matter Public

Often family members do not understand that a telephone call to 911 will set a series of events in motion that are quickly outside of the control of those involved in the conflict.

People charged with domestic assault have rarely had a previous criminal charge; they frequently do not understand what will happen after a call is made to the police.

When criminal charges are filed, a private family matter which could have been resolved in counseling, becomes a public spectacle with the government in control.

Allegations of domestic assault and family violence can be severe in Texas. They can compromise your parental rights and can carry the possibility of jail time along with a hefty fine.

Severe collateral consequences from an assault case with a finding of family violence could potentially bar you from legally owning a firearm. Further, many of these cases arise when couples are seeking a divorce and result in protective orders that can keep you from being with your family members.
