The mission of the Family Justice Division handles both felony and misdemeanor cases involving allegations of domestic violence, in addition to handling child abuse and sexual assault cases in Hays County. All juvenile cases are handled within the division as well to better help address the needs of our county’s children. Division lawyers may also represent protective order applicants in court where there has been a history of family violence. It is our mission in the Family Justice Division to prosecute offenders and provide assistance to victims of domestic violence or sexual abuse in the hope we can stop the cycle of violence on our community.
