Family Violence Vs. Domestic Violence: What Is The Difference?
Family violence and domestic violence are similar concepts applied to different combinations of people. These charges differ based on the relationship between the accused and accuser:
- Under Texas law, family violence is violence between intimate partners such as a boyfriend and girlfriend, husband and wife, or domestic partners.
- Also under Texas law, domestic violence includes violence between other family members, including brothers and sisters, children and parents, or roommates.
Whatever charges you face in a domestic situation, for best results, you need reliable advocacy as soon as possible. Quick legal action after a criminal arrest may keep the accused out of jail and provide opportunities for putting the legal problem behind you so you can focus on other life challenges.
Have You Been Targeted By False Allegations Of Family Violence Or Domestic Violence?
An experienced criminal defense attorney knows that family violence and domestic violence cases often involve false allegations or exaggerated accusations. We often see cases in which accusations have been made out of anger or revenge. Accusations may also be made by one parent against another in an attempt to gain child custody during a divorce. We know how to get to the truth and protect your innocence if you have been falsely accused.
You Deserve To Know Your Options
Even if it seems as though the odds are against you, you may be surprised at the options available. For example, you may be eligible to take anger management classes in exchange for having your family or domestic violence case dismissed, or for having it reduced to a Class C ticket. We are aware of all available options. Do not plead guilty without consulting an attorney first.
