The Foray Firm

Katy, Texas Domestic Violence Lawyer

Fort Bend County Domestic Violence Lawyer

Attorney for Protection from Family Violence and Domestic Assault in Fort Bend County

Family violence does not discriminate by income, race, or age. It also has many possible causes, including feelings of inferiority, a need to control or dominate, an anger or impulse-control disorder, PTSD, drug or alcohol abuse, or simply growing up in an abusive household. Sometimes it strikes unexpectedly due to a stressor such as a relationship break-up. Whatever the circumstances, domestic violence is a crime that must be dealt with head-on.

At The Foray Firm, you will find no judgment, only support. Our first priority is the safety of you and your family.

If you are a victim of domestic violence, we will connect you with resources for safe housing, counseling, and other services you may need to escape an unhealthy or dangerous home situation. We can also help you contact the police to initiate an investigation and bring criminal charges against an abuser.

On the legal front, we can file for a protective order. If you are filing for divorce, we can ask the court for temporary orders that will give you exclusive possession of your home, custody of your children and provide you with temporary financial support.

False Allegations of Spousal or Child Abuse

False allegations of domestic violence are sometimes made to gain an advantage in a bitter divorce or child custody dispute. Related accusations of drug/alcohol abuse or child neglect may also be made. We know how to investigate such claims to reveal any lies or exaggerations. Once we have the facts we need, we will move aggressively to protect your rights.

Texas Law on Domestic Violence

Domestic violence does not always involve two married people. Under Texas law, domestic violence includes assault by any person who lives with you or any member of your family. It also includes assault by someone you are currently dating or have previously been in a relationship with.

A person who commits domestic violence in Texas may be charged with one of three crimes:

  • Domestic assault occurs when someone threatens to physically harm you, makes physical contact of an offensive or provocative nature such as shoving, or inflicts physical harm through either intentional or reckless action.
  • Aggravated domestic assault occurs when the offender uses or displays a deadly weapon during an assault or when the offender intentionally or recklessly causes serious physical injury that requires immediate medical attention such as broken bones.
  • Continuous violence against the family occurs when the offender commits domestic assault two or more times within 12 months against you or any member of your family or household.
