Family violence is another common criminal offense in Parker County, as many people are arrested as a result of domestic disputes. Texas Family Code § 71.003 establishes that the term family includes individuals related by consanguinity (one is a descendant of the other or they share a common ancestor) or affinity (if two individuals are married to each other or the spouse of one of the individuals is related by consanguinity to the other individual), individuals who are former spouses of each other, individuals who are the parents of the same child, without regard to marriage, and a foster child and foster parent, without regard to whether those individuals reside together.
