  • Probation
  • Community service
  • Anger management counseling
  • Permanent charge on your criminal record

Because Texas does not allow crimes of moral turpitude to be expunged, there is no way to get rid of this charge. Your reputation and future can be damaged permanently.

Am I Facing a Misdemeanor or Felony Charge?

Family violence is classified as an assault against:

  • A family member
  • Someone you are in a relationship with
  • Someone living in the same household as you

Although this crime is typically committed against a spouse, it can also occur against other individuals in a household or relationship.

While most domestic violence offenses are Class A misdemeanors in Texas, these charges can be enhanced to felonies if serious bodily injuries are involved, or if you have previously been convicted of assaulting a family member. Bodily injury does not have to be caused for a charge of domestic violence to be filed, however.
