San Antonio Domestic Violence Attorneys
domestic violence charges in Texas
When law enforcement responds to a report of domestic violence, it can quickly become a complicated legal matter. An arrest will usually be made and you can find yourself facing domestic violence charges. In many cases, the victim will attempt to refuse to press charges, but law enforcement will "pick up the case" and proceed with charges anyway. Assault Bodily Injury (Married), Assault Bodily Injury (Family), and Assault Bodily Injury (Choking/Strangulation) are typical charges that are often filed. Domestic violence charges are prosecuted to the fullest extent in the state of Texas.

Texas Domestic Violence Laws
Due to the fact that domestic violence carries a stigma, you may have trouble ahead of you, even if you are innocent of the charges. Your right to possess firearms and obtain a hunting and fishing license can be affected depending upon the outcome of your case. Child custody issues are also another aspect of your life than can be affected by a domestic violence charge. For non-citizens, your immigration status may be affected.
