By legal definition, family members may include:

  • Children
  • Siblings
  • Domestic Partners
  • Immediate Relatives
  • Spouses
  • Parents

Domestic Violence Penalties in Texas

Texas courts have the ability to prosecute domestic violence offenses as either misdemeanors or felonies. Charges will depend on a number of circumstances involved in a case, including the nature of the offense, whether or not serious bodily harm was caused and the accused individual's criminal record.

If convicted of domestic violence, the penalties include:

  • Class C Misdemeanor - A $500 fine
  • Class A Misdemeanor - Up to a $4,000 fine and/or up to a year in jail
  • 3rd degree felony - Up to a $10,000 fine and a 2 to 20-year prison sentence

Effects of a Domestic Violence Conviction on Your Life

    “Ignatius, and his team, did a wonderful job on my journey to becoming a naturalized US citizen. They were there with my husband and I from the very beginning, until the Oath Ceremony. In the beginning, we had a wonderful consultation with Sanjay, where he explained everything step by step, and they presented all the necessary paperwork to the government for each step that we took. Part of our journey was with Anamika, where she helped us get through the first 2 parts of the legal process, and the final part was with Ignatius, who assisted us with the naturalization part. Thank you, Ignatius, for being there with me during the interview process. Your presence helped to ease my mind.”
