What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence is physically or emotionally violent behavior towards two people of the same household or that are in a close relationship. These actions are often against romantic partners or spouses, but can involve roommates, family members, or ex-partners. If you have been arrested for domestic violence and charges are being pressed against you, it is time to retain legal counsel. You can count on our legal team at The Law Office of Rene A. Flores PLLC to protect you against false accusations and from having your rights violated.
Common Types of Domestic Violence
In many cases, arrests are made because law enforcement was called by a neighbor or bystander who overhears or witnesses a fight. The incident may have been taken out of context or misunderstood. Depending on the circumstances, the person in question allegedly being hurt may not even have to press charges in order for you to be arrested. Our Hidalgo County criminal defense attorney and team are here to investigate the details of your arrest to determine the best method of defense for you.
A few examples of domestic violence offenses we defend include:
- Emotional abuse
What are the Penalties for Domestic Violence?
Charges of domestic violence can not only lead to immediate criminal consequences but they can also affect your personal life. If you are convicted, on top of prison sentences and fines, a restraining order will likely be taken out on you that prevents you from returning to your home, seeing your spouse (or the individual in question), and seeing your kids, if you share kids with the individual who has accused you of abuse.
