Dismissed Family Violence Charges
Unfortunately, some people falsely accuse their spouse of domestic violence, using family violence allegations to gain leverage in a divorce or child custody battle. In Texas, family violence accusations are serious, and a finding of guilt can land you in jail, have your right to bear arms revoked, and give you a permanent criminal record.
It’s important to remember that just because you or someone you know is accused of domestic violence doesn’t mean that he or she is automatically guilty. In fact, some 700,000 people are wrongfully arrested for domestic violence each year (source).
