Understanding Domestic Abuse in Texas
Texas Family Code §71.004 defines “family violence” as the following:
- When one family member commits bodily harm or injury, assault, or sexual assault against another family member
- When one family member creates the threat that the aforementioned acts are imminent against another family member
- Abuse toward a child
- Dating violence
Each of these categories includes specific definitions of types of abuse in a dating relationship or within a family. Domestic abuse can include violence against women, men, or—in the case of family violence—children.
Per Texas Family Code §71.0021, dating violence may occur when:
- The victim is an applicant for a protective order
- The victim is or was a dating partner or spouse of the accused
- The accused threatened or harmed the victim physically, caused bodily injury, or sexually assaulted them
The dating relationship between the accused and the victim may be established if it involved intimacy or was of a romantic nature. Other components of the relationship that may be important in a domestic violence case include:
- The length of the relationship
- The frequency and type of interaction between the parties in the relationship
