What Is Family Violence?

Many people think of family violence strictly in terms of spousal abuse. However, under Texas law, family violence actually encompasses all family members (parents, children, siblings, etc.), spouses, current and past dating partners, and all household members. To win a domestic violence conviction, the state must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant intentionally, knowingly or recklessly caused bodily injury to another person, threatened imminent bodily injury, or caused physical contact that the defendant knew or should have known the victim would find provocative or defensive.

There are several potential defenses for persons accused of domestic violence, ranging from self-defense to showing that the incident in question never occurred. As a family violence lawyer, Attorney Flores knows these defenses and can help you shape the best one for your case.
