Accused Of Domestic Violence?

Houston Criminal Defense Attorneys

Charges of domestic violence include physically or emotionally violent confrontations between family or household members. These incidents can involve physical harm, sexual assault, or fear of physical harm. In domestic violence cases, the abuser uses behaviors such as intimidation, threats, psychological abuse, and isolation to coerce and to control a victim. Actual violence does not have to occur, as charges can still be brought when threats or intimidation are allegedly used.

Don't let these serious accusations ruin your future. Contact our Houston criminal defense lawyers at The Gonzalez Law Group, PLLC, for help.

Who Can File Domestic Violence Complaints?

Anyone living in your household may file a police report against you. They do not have to be related by blood and can include ex-romantic partners who may try to use a domestic abuse charge to gain leverage in other legal battles such as child custody or alimony disputes.

Family or household members can include:

  • Current spouses
  • Former spouses
  • Former or current partners in a dating relationship
  • Adults related by blood or marriage
  • A biological or legal parent-child relationship
  • Former or current roommates

What Is Psychological Violence?

Domestic violence doesn't just cover physical and sexual violence but also psychological violence. This type of violence involves repetitive degradation, creating isolation, and controlling the actions or behaviors of the victim through intimidation or manipulation. This type of violence is harder to prove in court, but is treated just as harshly as actual physical abuse or violence. Even if an individual doesn't have external bruises, accusations of domestic violence can still be leveled against you.
