Texas Domestic Violence Laws

Under Texas law, three separate crimes involving domestic violence have been established.

These crimes include:

  • Domestic assault
  • Aggravated domestic assault
  • Continuous violence in a domestic setting

Assault in these cases involves causing bodily injury, threatening a family member with imminent bodily harm, or making some kind of physical contact that is offensive or provocative. A family member can include a spouse, child, former spouse, someone you live with or have lived with in the past, the parent with whom you have a child in unmarried instances, present or former dating partner, or any household member.

What are the Penalties for Domestic Violence?

Misdemeanor Domestic Violence Penalties

Basic domestic assault is usually charged as a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000. You may also be required to attend court-ordered programs such as anger management or substance abuse education or treatment. Your accuser may file a restraining order against you that prohibits any contact and makes it impossible to see your children.

Felony Domestic Violence Penalties

In cases of aggravated or continuous assault, felony charges will result along with harsher penalties. For a felony domestic violence charge, you can be facing 2-10 years in jail as well as fines up to $10,000. In the face of all this, we strongly urge you to seek the committed and skilled legal services you will find at Cañas & Flores.
