New Presumption created under Texas Protective Order laws

The State of Texas has created a new presumption when it comes to family violence and protective orders. The new law will affect how family violence cases are dealt with in Round Rock, Williamson County Texas. The presumption is that family violence has occurred and is likely to occur in the future under certain circumstances. I wrote a blog post dealing with the changes to the protective order laws on my family law web page.

This change in Texas Law may significantly change how a court would handle a divorce, child custody case, or other family law matter. The court is required to grant an application for a protective order if it finds that family violence has occurred and is likely to occur in the future.

I believe it is necessary that attorneys' dealing with family violence cases have experience as both a criminal and family lawyer. If a criminal attorney is dealing with an assault family violence case and does not understand the possible fall out from a conviction or deferred adjudication stemming from a family violence arrest the defendant may enter a plea unknowingly hurting a future protective order case, or child custody case.

Clifford Alan Swayze has experience dealing with family violence cases as criminal attorney, family attorney and protective order attorney.
