Texas Domestic Assault Laws

Domestic assault law differs from Texas’ simple assault law in only one way—domestic assault involves family violence for those who are close with the alleged assailant.

This crime involves physical, sexual, or psychological violence or abuse against a/an:







Also, this is another special circumstance surrounding domestic violence charges. Here, a police officer can arrest someone without having witnessed any part of the incident. Therefore, this raises questions that whether the arrest involved the perpetrator or the victim. Unknowingly, whether any type of assault actually took place or not.

Domestic Assault

In addition, individuals who commit physical violence are charged with domestic assault. Apart from this, individuals who make threats of physical violence against a family member may be accused as well. Consequently, for individuals without a prior history of related charges, domestic assault is classified as a misdemeanor. However, if a history of domestic violence exists, domestic assault may be classified as a felony offense.


Aggravated domestic assault

Meanwhile, individuals who cause serious physical violence or commit violence may be charged with aggravated domestic assault. Alongside, this also includes individuals making threats of violence involving a deadly weapon. Additionally, aggravated domestic assault is classified as a first- or second-degree felony in the state of Texas.

Continuous violence against the family

Certainly, individuals who commit multiple domestic assaults in a 12-month period may face additional charges. Consequently, this is with respect to continuous violence against the family.

The Opinions That Matter Most

Very pleased with Mrs. Kara she went above and beyond to help my brother-in-law. Would highly recommend her she is on top of what is needing to be done. Thank you again.

Xylia Perez

Today’s legal system, like our government, is corrupted by misguided ideologies, spineless politicians, & corporate finances which makes it hard for the little guy to get a fair shake, but Kara and her team worked tirelessly to achieve a full dismissal of the charges filed against me by a corporate giant. The personal approach, genuine concern, and unwavering dedication to ensuring that everyone is treated equally under the law is what sold me. The wheels of Justice move slow but with patience, perseverance, and Carreras Law Group you too can experience the joy of victory & vindication in our skewed legal system. I recommended Carreras Law Group 100%!!!


I have known Kara since her days in Law School and have followed her career since then. She is extremely professional and a tough litigator. She has assisted my family with various legal situations and has provided us with excellent legal counsel. If I needed someone that specialized in the field of law outside her specialty, she would steer me with recommendations of other attorneys that specialized in those fields. Every one of the attorneys she has recommended has been of the highest caliber. I am so pleased to see her starting her own law group and am certain that she and the firm will have many years of exemplary service to the DFW area.

Kenneth Upchurch

Very professional, very honest, I really recommend them. (Original) Muy profesional muy honesta en verdad se las recomiendo 👍🏻

Ana Ramirez

Most reviews are a collection of flowery endorsements that read well but carry little weight. I don’t do flowery. I’m a 68 year old man who does not like lawyers, most doctors and 99% of all politicians. I get along better with a good dog than most people, I have never been on Facebook and have never “tweeted”. I own a flip phone that I answer only when it suits me. I have served our country as a proud member of the military police during Vietnam and I normally do not do testimonials but in this case I will make an exception. If asked for my opinion you will get the brutal truth, whether you want it or not. Ms. Carreras has proven to be an exception to the rule. She handled a relatively minor legal matter for me and drove it to successful completion in record time. She is a person of exceptional character and a consummate professional, which is a rare thing indeed in the litigation community. If you are in need of the best and someone who cares about your legal well being, you cannot employ a more competent litigator that shows wisdom well beyond her years.

George Carte

I cannot thank Ms. Carreras enough! The time, effort and personal commitment she took to resolve a family legal situation went far beyond our expectations. She not only got the charges reduced but in the end was able to have the entire case dismissed. We forever owe you a debt of gratitude !

Doreen Labit

Both my fiance and I were charged with the same bogus charges and Ms. Carreras swiftly dealt with my fiance’s case in two appearances! My lawyer on the other hand didn’t do his job and after 9 months of dragging his feet the DA talked with Ms. Carreras the week before trial was to begin and she convinced them to dismiss my case as well! If I EVER need a lawyer again I will be calling Ms. Carreras!!!!

Raymond Prater

Kara Carreras is such a great attorney. She really dug deep into my case to find all the necessary details. Kara got me off of a charge that didn’t seem possible. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. And will never use anyone else!

Sherman Allen

By far Kara Carreras is the best attorney myself or my family has dealt with. She treated us like family. She consistently kept me updated as to what was going on without me even having to call her. She went that extra mile for us and I can never thank her enough for her kindness, compassion, and thoroughness of the job she did for us. If I could give her 10 stars I would!!
