How to Get an Affidavit of Non-Prosecution Form in Texas
If an alleged victim of domestic violence in Texas decides not to press charges, they can submit a written form to the prosecutor stating that they want the case to be dismissed, or no longer prosecuted. This is called an Affidavit of Non-Prosecution Form and is freely available online.
Filing the form with the DA, however, is no guarantee that a prosecutor will not pursue the domestic violence charges. For help with an affidavit of non-prosecution in Collin County, and particularly for assistance in filling out the form completely and accurately, call the domestic violence lawyers at Peveto Law in Plano.
Our lawyers are sensitive to the serious nature of domestic violence charges, but we also understand that first responders who arrest individuals for family violence might misinterpret situations as they fulfill their obligations to maintain the peace. Under these circumstances, it is imperative to complete an affidavit of non-prosecution with a thorough description of the events that led to the arrest and the rational reasons for requesting an abatement of prosecution.
When you contact the Peveto Law Offices, you will have an opportunity to discuss your matter with a Plano criminal defense lawyer whose legal skills are backed by years of experience in domestic violence matters.
