What Is Considered Domestic Violence in Texas?

In Texas, domestic violence encompasses several separate offenses. These include assault causing bodily injury to a family member, aggravated assault, and continuous violence against the family. These crimes occur between individuals who have a familial relationship, reside together, or have had a romantic or dating history.

Family or members of the household may include the following:

  • Present and past partners or spouses
  • Individuals sharing children
  • Parents
  • Children of a current or previous spouse
  • Relatives by birth, adoption, or marriage
  • Cohabitants in the same residency
  • Those who have or formerly had a romantic bond.

The classification of charges in domestic violence cases depends on the situation and can result in either misdemeanor or felony charges. Felony charges tend to have harsher criminal punishments. However, any conviction can bring about lasting effects. Hence, promptly seeking counsel from a domestic violence attorney is crucial to avoid costly mistakes.
