Walworth County divorce lawyer

Deciding to end a marriage is never easy. Divorcing couples not only deal with the personal implications of divorce, but they must also contend with the financial and legal consequences of ending their marriage. If you are considering divorce in Wisconsin, you may have many questions about what to expect. You may be unsure of how issues such as property division, alimony, and child custody are handled in Wisconsin. Ending a marriage is often a complicated legal process, especially if the couple owns complex assets, has a high net worth, or shares children. An experienced divorce attorney can answer your questions and help you navigate the legal proceedings. 

How Do I File for Divorce?

If you are ready to begin the divorce process, your first step is to file a Summons and Petition for Divorce with the court. The person who initially files for divorce is the petitioner and the other spouse is the respondent. The petitioner must ensure that the respondent is served with the summons and petition, either by serving the respondent the papers himself or herself, asking a friend or relative to serve the divorce papers, or serving the divorce papers via a process server or police officer. The respondent must file a Response and Counterclaim with the court within 20 days.

Waukesha County personal injury attorney domestic violence

Individuals who are physically harmed by a romantic partner, family member, or household member may be left with serious injuries – both mental and physical. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) may be caused by blows to the head, hitting one’s head on the ground, receiving a penetrating injury to the skull, and through other forms of physical trauma. If you sustained a traumatic brain injury as a result of domestic violence, you should know that you have certain rights. You may be able to hold the alleged abusive person accountable for his or her actions criminally and civilly.

Criminal Charges Versus a Civil Claim

Although doing so is often much easier said than done, it is important to call the police after being physically attacked by an abusive person. Doing so enables you to create a record of the abuse and hold the alleged abuser criminally accountable for the harm he or she caused. Criminal charges, however, do not provide financial restitution for the injured victim. A traumatic brain injury can have a dramatic influence on a sufferer’s life. Your TBI may have caused you to suffer from painful and debilitating symptoms such as intense headaches, nausea, dizziness, memory problems, speech difficulties, cognitive issues, depression, sleep disturbances, and more. The injury may have necessitated expensive medical care. Symptoms may even prevent you from working and earning an income. This can create a heavy financial burden. A civil claim may allow you to recover financial compensation for the losses you experienced because of the traumatic brain injury.

Milwaukee County criminal defense attorney OWI

When you are stopped for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in Wisconsin, you will generally be given a breathalyzer test, and its results will then be used as evidence to determine whether you should be charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) or not. However, what many are not aware of is that very often, breathalyzer test results are inaccurate. If you believe this has happened in your case, an experienced DUI defense attorney can help you ensure that your rights are protected. 

Several Reasons for Error

There are several different possible reasons that a breathalyzer test could be inaccurate. Some include:

Racine County criminal defense attorney OWI

If you have been arrested and charged with operating while intoxicated in Wisconsin, you probably have several questions. You may be unsure of whether you will lose your driving privileges, be required to install a breath ignition interlock device (IID) on your vehicle, or face jail time for drunk driving. The answers to these questions depend on the circumstances of the offense, whether or not you avoid conviction, your past criminal history, and other factors.  

What Is an IID?

An ignition interlock device is a device used to measure the amount of alcohol in someone’s breath. This information is then used to determine the person’s blood alcohol content (BAC). Once an IID is installed in a vehicle, the ignition will only engage after the driver submits a passing breath sample into the device. If the driver’s breath does not contain alcohol, the car will start normally. If the driver’s breath does contain alcohol, the vehicle will not start. There are many myths surrounding how to “cheat” an IID. However, IIDs are carefully calibrated, sophisticated devices that cannot be tricked. Using breath mints, eating certain foods, and other strategies for cheating an IID do not work.

Walworth County personal injury attorney sexual assault

Being the victim of a crime such as assault, sexual assault, battery, or robbery is a traumatizing and complicated ordeal to go through. Many victims do not even realize all of their rights after being injured in a violent crime. Most know that they can contact the police and press criminal charges, but fewer are aware of their right to file a civil claim. Personal injury cases are often associated with accidents such as slip and fall accidents or car accidents; however, a person injured by an intentional act may also bring a personal injury claim against the perpetrator.

Pursuing Legal Action After Being a Victim of an Intentional Tort

Assault and battery are criminal offenses punishable by considerable criminal penalties in Wisconsin. A criminal conviction for assault or battery may bring an offender to justice, but the conviction does little to directly help the victim. If you were hurt in an assault, the experience has likely affected your life in profound ways. You could be facing considerable medical bills and ongoing medical needs because of your injuries. You may also be unable to work while you are recovering from the physical and mental harm caused by the attack. A personal injury claim may enable you to recover compensation for these and other costs. It may also serve as a means of holding the perpetrator accountable for the harm that he or she caused you.
