Denton County Domestic Violence Attorney

Retain a Denton County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Accusations of domestic violence are relatively common, but there are many cases in which the accusations are false. Domestic violence charges are generally filed after an informal investigation of the matter by law enforcement. If you have been accused of domestic violence by your spouse, child, neighbor, or other individual, it is in your best interest to hire a Denton County criminal defense lawyer to defend you right away.

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. Make sure that your rights are defended by retaining a defense lawyer from Haugen Law Firm, P.C. as soon as possible.
