What is Domestic Violence in Texas?

Domestic violence in Texas includes various types of assault against family or household members, dating partners, or former dating partners. In order to be convicted of domestic violence, the prosecution must prove certain factors beyond a reasonable doubt.

The prosecution will have to show that you:

  • Caused bodily injury intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly
  • Threatened to cause such injury knowingly or intentionally
  • Caused some kind of physical contact knowingly or intentionally that provoked or offended your alleged victim

Family violence crimes in Texas are categorized into domestic assault, aggravated domestic assault, and continuous domestic assault. How you are charged will depend on the nature of the assault, whether bodily injury occurred, whether a weapon was used, your prior criminal history, and if choking or strangulation was involved. Charges can range from a Class C misdemeanor up to a first-degree felony.
