Most people are touched by the legal system at least once in their lifetime, albeit not by choice in the majority of cases. Divorce proceedings often lead to criminal charges, such as assault/family violence, criminal trespass, or criminal mischief, against one or both parties in the divorce, either as a bargaining tool or many times as a result of tension in the relationship. The Child Protective Services Unit of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services most certainly will intervene where allegations of sexual assault of a child and/or child abuse are made by family members who are pulled in numerous directions by a custody dispute. Passion and anger run high in these cases, and people end up hiring several different attorneys to handle various portions of their legal defense or prosecution. Many family law attorneys don't take criminal defense cases, even though such cases can go hand in hand. Moreover, when legal issues are finally resolved, a cleanup process remains, which may involve an expunction, order for non-disclosure, or other redress.
