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:

child

parent

spouse

sibling

intimate
partner

Roommate
cohabitant

Another special circumstance surrounding domestic violence charges is that a police officer can arrest someone without having witnessed any part of the incident. This raises questions of whether the arrest involved the perpetrator or the victim, or whether any type of assault (either actual injury or threat of imminent injury) took place.

The state of Texas maintains strict domestic violence laws, with multiple levels of charges levied against those accused of harming a relative or household member.

Kara Carreras represents clients charged with all types of domestic violence offenses, including:

Domestic Assault

Individuals who commit physical violence or make threats of physical violence against a family member or household member may be charged with domestic assault. For individuals without a prior history of related charges, domestic assault is classified as a misdemeanor. If a history of domestic violence exists, domestic assault may be classified as a felony offense.

Individuals who cause serious physical violence or commit violence or make threats of violence involving a deadly weapon may be charged with aggravated domestic assault. Aggravated domestic assault is classified as a first- or second-degree felony in the state of Texas.

Continuous violence against the family

Individuals who commit multiple domestic assaults in a 12-month period may face additional charges of continuous violence against the family. A third-degree felony, continuous violence against the family carries stiff penalties in addition to those stemming from the underlying domestic assault charges

Domestic Violence Diversion Program

This pre-trial diversion program allows certain defendants the opportunity to avoid the traditional court process and instead participate in a non-adversarial probation process that provides tools to use to avoid future instances of violence. If you are successful in meeting the terms of your probation, the prosecution will drop its charges against you and your record will remain clean.
