Family Violence Lawyers in Texas
False or exaggerated charges of domestic violence (also called “family violence”) occur more often than you think. Police officers are trained to identify the aggressor upon responding to calls of domestic violence or domestic disturbances. This is a difficult task in and of itself, since stereotypes and socialization may taint a police officer’s perception of victim and aggressor. After all, police officers are human, too.

This becomes a serious problem when you consider the fact that a police officer may make an arrest without a warrant if there is probable cause to believe there was an occurrence of domestic violence. Charges are often brought between spouses engaged in messy divorces or couples pursuing a complicated custody battle. Unfortunately, a snap judgment can lead to arrests based on false or exaggerated claims of domestic violence. The faulty reasoning behind these charges can spell serious problems for your future, especially without the assistance of an experienced team of family violence lawyers.
