What Is Family Violence?

Family violence, also called domestic violence, can include harm against family members or romantic partners, but it can also include anyone with whom you share a household. With 15 years of combined legal experience, Attorneys Aaron E. Eckman and Victoria Eckman have worked in a domestic violence court and are familiar with how prosecutors pursue these charges.

A few examples of family violence charges we represent include:

  • Physical violence
  • Threats of violence
  • Sexual assault
  • Child endangerment
  • Child abuse

Every family violence charge carries slightly different consequences. The penalties you may face depend on the nature of the alleged crime, such as whether physical harm was caused or not. There are several different levels of family violence charges, ranging from a Class C misdemeanor carrying up to $500 in fines to a first-degree felony carrying 5-99 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.

Impacts of a Family Violence Conviction

In addition to criminal penalties, a conviction of family violence can also affect the following:

  • Your custody and visitation rights
  • Your ability to vote
  • Your right to bear arms

Defenses Against Family Violence Charges

Below are a few potential defenses that may be used in cases involving family violence charges in Texas:

  • Self-defense: If you can demonstrate that you acted in self-defense to protect yourself or others from imminent harm, it may be a valid defense.
  • Lack of evidence: Your defense attorney may object to the prosecution's evidence by challenging witnesses' credibility, inconsistencies in testimony, or insufficient physical evidence.
  • False accusations: In some cases, individuals may make false allegations of family violence for various reasons, such as revenge or to gain an advantage in a divorce or custody dispute.
  • Lack of intent: Family violence charges often require proof of intent to harm or threaten another person. If your attorney can demonstrate that there was no intent or that your actions were accidental, it may be a viable defense.
  • Lack of corroboration: In some cases, the alleged victim's account may lack corroboration or supporting evidence.

It's important to note that these defenses are general examples and may not be applicable or effective in every situation. Consult with our family violence attorney in Midland to understand the best possible defenses based on the specific circumstances of your case.
