The Two Main Types of Family Violence

There are two types of family violence that are recognized by the court. These are:

  • Physical violence- Any situation that threatens to cause bodily harm, does cause bodily injury, or leads to any physical contact the other person may regard as offensive

  • Emotional violence- Includes intentional verbal threats, rejection, put-downs, isolation, bullying, or fear mongering

Both forms of family violence have long-lasting emotional, psychological, and even physical ramifications. If you or a loved one have been the victim of either type of violence, you should speak to an Austin family law attorney immediately to learn how you can be helped.

False Accusations of Violence

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a partner to make false or exaggerated claims of family violence in order to gain a leg up in custody or divorce proceedings. This should be taken very seriously as domestic violence charges can have serious ramifications on your future. Contact an Austin family violence lawyer today to discuss what can be done to reclaim your reputation.

The Texas Family Code

According to the Texas Family Code, dating or cohabitating partners, ex-spouses, former partners, and current spouses all qualify for protection under state law. If you or a loved one are the victim of family violence or the victim of false allegations, our team of Austin family law attorneys has extensive experience handling these cases.
