Family Violence is Domestic Battery or Assault
Family violence charges can quickly ruin reputations and tear families apart. If you are arrested for family violence assault, a temporary protective order is typically given to you before you leave jail. This order can prevent you from going near your own home or loved ones. Immediately contacting a domestic violence attorney is critical.

Only The Prosecutor Can Dismiss The Case – Not The Victim
After someone is arrested for family violence, the family member who made the accusation does not have the ability to dismiss the charges. Nor is it their option to “press charges.” Once arrested, these decisions are entirely in the hands of the police department to file the case and district attorney to dismiss the charge.
More Than Just Families
Family Violence does not only involve “Families.” Most people mistakenly believe assault family violence only involves spouses or other relatives. However, in Texas family violence can apply to people in a dating relationship, distant relatives, and even roommates.
