Explanation of Family Violence and Dating Violence
Domestic violence, which is referred to as "family violence"
in Texas, can occur in relation to a number of different crimes. Often,
it is charged in cases of assault or
sexual assault, though it may also apply in situations involving stalking, trespassing,
or unlawful restraint. The common denominator of family violence cases
is that these are incidents that occur between people who share a family
relationship, such as spouses or parents and children.
Domestic violence also includes dating violence, which occurs between romantic
partners. Allegations of domestic violence will often result in a family
violence protective order being issued against the defendant - an injunction
which has the power to:
- Forbid the defendant from making contact with the victim
- Order the defendant to stay away from anywhere that the victim is likely
to be found
- Order the defendant to move out of the shared home regardless of whose
name is on the lease or deed
- Establish temporary terms of child custody, visitation, and child and spousal support
Such orders may be of short or long duration, and the alleged victim may
apply for a permanent order. As long as any such order is in place, you
cannot legally own, possess or use a firearm, and this prohibition will
be made permanent if you are convicted of any misdemeanor or felony domestic
violence offense. Fortunately, you may be able to avoid such serious consequences
by hiring a Round Rock criminal defense attorney to help you fight back
against the charges.
