Fort Worth Domestic Violence Lawyer
Have you been arrested for domestic violence?
Domestic violence typically refers to patterns of abuse by one or both
partners in an intimate relationship (such as a marriage, family members,
those who are dating, or those who live together). Many criminal acts
are encompassed under the umbrella of domestic violence, and some of the
more common include:
- Beating or assault
- Verbal abuse, threats, or intimidation
- Sexual assault
- Removal of a child without the other parent's consent
The above acts do not actually need to be committed in order for domestic
violence charges to be levied. Even the threat of committing such acts
can result in domestic violence charges.
Possible Penalties for Domestic Violence
The penalties administered for a conviction vary widely due to the variety
of criminal acts involved in domestic violence, but they can include fines
of up to $2500 and up to 2 years in prison. If you have been arrested
on domestic violence charges, it is very important you contact a
defense lawyer in Fort Worth who can represent you in court and ensure you receive a fair trial.
