Written for Regular People
In this guide I discuss general principles, but it is not meant for lawyers. It is meant for someone who wants to learn about the legal process as it relates to Assault – Family Violence. Perhaps you are a friend or loved one of someone charges, and you helping them through the situation. Or you are charged with Assault yourself.
If you are facing these charges, you may be scouring the internet for every bit of information you can find. This guide is an attempt to give you some handle on what the process will be like. However, it is NOT a DIY guide for handling your case. Always defer to the advice of your attorney.
Focuses on Practical Solutions
With this guide, I attempt to focus on real practical issues that come up over and over. Things like: is there a protective order? When will my court date be? How long will this process last? Will it show up on my criminal history when I apply for a job? If you have specific questions like these, check the table of contents – there might be an answer in there. If not, you can always set up a consultation.
Any criminal charge – and especially an AFV charge – is stressful. Even if the charge is later dismissed, the stress and hassle of the court process can be extreme. Hopefully, this guide will get rid of the mystery and alleviate some of the stress that is associated with the unknown. It is also intended as an introduction to ATX.legal, and the services that we can provide as your criminal defense attorney, should you decide to hire us. We are always a phone call away: 512-677-5003 during business hours. Or text the same number after hours for jail release.
