Have you Been Arrested for Domestic Violence?
Unfortunately, domestic violence laws in the State of Texas can be quite one sided against the accused. Texas law allows a police officer to make an arrest for domestic violence as long as there is some evidence presented; this does not have to be physical evidence. This evidence could solely be a statement made by the alleged victim or a witness. To prevent the possibility of future violence, public policy demands that law enforcement take all action available regardless of your innocence. This means that a resentful spouse or angry partner could make an accusation that will spark an investigation that will soon turn your life upside down. Our attorneys at Dyer & Libby Attorneys At Law care about your side of the story. We will take whatever legal steps necessary to defend your freedom and protect your rights.
What Is Domestic Violence
Domestic Violence is a pattern of behavior that involves physical violence, threatened violence, and abuse by one person towards another in a family-like relationship. In Texas, domestic violence can occur in the following types of relationships:
• Married Couples (aka Spousal Abuse)
• Persons who were formerly married to each other
• Cohabiting Couples
• Intimate Partner Violence
• Persons who have a child or children in common
Texas law recognizes three different crimes of domestic violence: domestic assault, aggravated domestic assault and continuous violence against the family.
Domestic Violence Accusations
In addition to facing criminal charges, a person accused of domestic violence could be incarcerated, put on probation or under community supervision and ordered to pay fines or restitution.
