Texas Affidavits of Non-prosecution
Domestic Violence Attorneys in Denton County
Oftentimes, minor domestic incidents that escalate beyond the control of
the parties wind up in court. The domestic partner or spouse bringing
a charge may later consider the situation, realizing it did not warrant
legal action. Unfortunately, he or she no longer has the power to easily
stop the wheels of the legal process. Because of the serious nature of
domestic violence and the laws pertaining to it, one cannot simply withdraw a charge.

Affidavits of non-prosecution come to us from an earlier legal system.
In earlier times, an aggrieved party bringing charges against another
party could later petition to drop the charges. Many people today are
under the impression that this process still occurs today. However, because
the state brings charges against a defendant in a domestic violence case,
the process is no longer as straightforward as it once was.
Affidavits of Non-prosecution Today
One major stumbling block to the dropping of a domestic violence or assault
charge is the nature of the charge itself. Oftentimes, domestic abuse
is cyclical and related to dependency issues. The Denton County court
system recognizes the possibility of a cycle of violence: A husband abuses
his wife and is jailed; the wife is running out of money and wants him
out of jail and seeks to have the charges dropped in order to once again
obtain financial support.
At the Law offices of Tim Powers, we address important legal implications
related to filing affidavits of non-prosecution. Instances of mutual combat
or self-defense may be sufficient grounds for having a case dropped. Because
the subject is not only serious, but also personal, our attorneys approach
non-prosecution in a careful manner so as not to aggravate a situation.
