Texas Courts Take Domestic Violence Allegations Very Seriously
In any case of alleged domestic violence or child abuse, if the police are called to respond, someone is almost certainly going to jail. It does not matter if there was a misunderstanding. It does not matter if the alleged victim refuses to press charges or changes his or her story.
Courts in Texas set bonds very high in these cases, making it difficult for some to avoid spending time in jail while the case is in progress. If you were arrested and charged with domestic violence, you need an experienced attorney on your side immediately.
The Law Offices of Gilbert J. Alvarado represent clients charged with domestic and family violence of all kinds, including:
- Simple domestic assault (touching, pushing, restraining)
- Spousal abuse or battery (causing physical injury)
- Injury to a child
- Harassment, intimidation or making terroristic threats

Domestic Violence Protective Orders
Protective orders (also known as restraining orders) may be automatically issued by the courts in cases of alleged domestic violence. Although the issuance of the protective order may be difficult to fight, it is still vitally important to have an experienced defense attorney at your side.
Without knowledgeable legal representation, you may be unable to fight the unreasonable restrictions put in place by a protective order. Due a simple mistake such as the listing of the wrong address, you may be barred from entering your own home or gaining access to your own property. Your attorney can also help prevent a temporary domestic violence protective order from becoming permanent.
