In Texas as criminal statutes have ballooned, it has become increasingly easy for Texans to end up on the wrong side of the law, especially when some of these statutes don’t require prosecutors to prove criminal intent and the enormous practical challenges that ensue when criminal law and family law overlap.
We understand that the United States Constitution and the Texas Constitution holds that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty. In other words, the prosecution must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, each essential element of the crime charged. We also understand that Family Law cases are proven by a lesser standard, a preponderance of the evidence and that litigants in family law cases often try to allege criminal misconduct by the opposing party without solid evidence. This leaves a family law litigant with a pending criminal case that hasn’t been litigated in the criminal courts and is unable to fully defend oneself and at a significant disadvantage in family court.
We work hard to investigate, develop a strategy and build a case that not only introduces doubt into the question of our clients’ guilt in the criminal case but also eliminates confusion and ramifications on the day to day lives of our clients, their families and children. For example, criminal convictions can negatively impact employment and the consequent financial ability to care for a child and the Judge may impose limitations on the parent’s custodial rights or visitation.
