Domestic Lawsuit Process
Domestic violence assault charges can be filed in many different circumstances including physical violence against another person and threats of violence. Oftentimes when the police are called to assist with a domestic dispute, someone is charged. This does not necessarily mean that those charges will hold up in a court of law, but it is imperative that you have a criminal lawyer who understands the intricacies of Texas assault family violence laws.
For first time offenders, domestic violence assault charges are often considered a misdemeanor if a weapon is not used. However, if second or third charges are filed at a later time the magnitude of the charges increases and after a few misdemeanors the domestic violence charge will be considered a felony. This is why it is so important for you to fight hard against every charge by using a good defense lawyer from The Kyle Law Firm with extensive courtroom experience.
