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.
