Additional Information


Being arrested or charged with domestic violence is a very serious offense in the state of Wisconsin, whether it involves a husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, parent, adult child, or partner. Although some domestic violence cases involve complicated circumstances, the state has strict laws governing those involved in these types of cases before, during, and after the trial. Violating these laws, even unintentionally, can result in additional charges, even if you’re not guilty of the initial incident.An experienced criminal defense attorney will help you protect your rights, explain the process clearly, and act as a buffer in what can be a highly emotional situation.Domestic abuse, under Wisconsin state law, involves crimes of violence between adult persons who live or used to live together, and can include:

  • Battery
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Criminal damage to property
  • Violation of an existing restraining order

Any individual charged with domestic abuse, regardless of the circumstances, is automatically issued a “No Contact Order” and required to stay away from the other person. It is critical to follow a “No Contact Order” as it could potentially open you up to additional, serious charges.  We can assist you in understanding the process that MUST be followed to get the “No Contact Order” lifted.

If there are children involved, a defense attorney may be able to have the order amended to include third-party visitation rights.
