You may be able to stop charges from being filed in the first place. Haugen Law Firm, P.C. can provide skilled criminal defense against accusations of domestic violence as well as official criminal charges.

Definition & Penalties for Domestic Violence

Texas Family Code § 71.004 defines "family violence" as any act that causes injury or fear of immediate harm in a spouse, child, or household member of the alleged offender. Domestic violence is penalized under the laws for assault and battery, but the penalties reach beyond a misdemeanor or felony. If convicted of domestic violence, you could be required to leave your home and stay away from your family due to a protective order or restraining order. You may also lose custody of your children.
