What Exactly Is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence is any reckless action that causes bodily harm or any threat to cause bodily harm to another person who has some sort of relationship with you. Making physical contact with this person also could fall under the definition of domestic violence. The action does not have to be intentional.
Texas Family Code Chapter 71 deals with the circumstances that can lead to a charge of domestic violence. If you are unfamiliar with this portion of the code, it might catch you by surprise who can bring a domestic violence charge against you, including:
- A spouse
- A family member
- A roommate
- A former dating partner
- A current dating partner
We Will Help You Understand the Penalties You Might Face
Penalties in a domestic violence case can be wide-ranging upon a conviction. For a low-level misdemeanor charge, you might receive a fine or an order to undergo counseling.
However, suppose prosecutors decide to bring a felony domestic violence charge against you. In that case, you could be facing a significant fine of up to $10,000, as well as multiple years in prison.
