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.
