Walworth County criminal defense attorney domestic violence

Domestic violence involves physical or psychological abuse against a former or current family member, romantic partner, or household member. Wisconsin takes accusations of domestic violence or abuse very seriously. There is not a crime specifically called “domestic violence,” but battery, assault, sexual assault, and other crimes often fall under the category of domestic violence. If you have been arrested for alleged violence against a spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend, ex-romantic partner, child, or roommate, do not take these charges casually. Your career, reputation, and even your freedom could be on the line.

Do Not Make Statements to the Police Without Your Attorney

You have a Constitutional right to refuse police questioning and ask for your lawyer. It is important to take advantage of this right. Whatever the circumstances of your arrest, the ordeal was most likely traumatic. You may have gotten into a physical altercation with another person and been injured. You may have been accused of things you did not actually do. Experiences like these leave a person in a heightened emotional state. You could easily say things to the police during questioning that you do not mean and end up worsening your situation because of it. Remember, any statements that you make to police can be used against you during criminal proceedings. It is best to remain silent and wait for your attorney.

Domestic violence affects the lives of millions of Americas. Whether you have been a victim of domestic violence or abuse or you have been accused of abusing someone, it is important to know about your rights and responsibilities regarding restraining orders. A restraining order is a type of court order called an injunction. For example, this legally enforceable order may prohibit an individual from contacting or coming within a certain distance of you and/or your children.  

Domestic Violence and Abuse

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 10 million men and women are the victims of physical abuse at the hands of a romantic partner every year in the United States. Both males and females can be victims or perpetrators of domestic violence. Physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse can happen to people of all income levels and lifestyles.
