Walworth County victim's rights attorney

Most of the time, there is a clear-cut difference between criminal law cases and civil law cases. In some instances, however, the line between the two types of law is blurred, and a civil lawsuit could easily stem from a criminal case. There are many crimes that, when committed, can be extremely harmful and damaging to the victims. Criminal cases can help bring the perpetrator to justice, but they often do not help the victim with the medical bills, counseling, lost wages, or other damages that may have resulted from the crime. Often, a civil lawsuit is needed to provide the victims of these crimes with the compensation that they deserve for the hardships they have endured.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit for Crimes

Waukesha County OWI defense attorney

Even though Wisconsin tends to be one of the most lenient states when it comes to operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, there are still serious consequences that you can face if you are convicted of these criminal charges. By far, one of the most aggravating consequences of a Wisconsin OWI charge is the fact that you can have your driver’s license suspended or revoked. If this happens, you will be unable to drive for a specified period of time -- unless you have what is called an occupational driver’s license. This type of license allows a person to continue to drive during a suspension or revocation period for certain reasons. Although it is not an ideal situation overall, an occupational license can help immensely.

Eligibility for an Occupational License

If your driver’s license has been suspended because of OWI-related charges, you may be able to have a temporary occupational license issued. In general, most people will qualify for an occupational license if their license has been suspended because of an OWI arrest. However, under the following circumstances, you may not be eligible to receive an occupational license:

Milwaukee County divorce attorney asset and property division

When you get married, you do not expect to get divorced from your spouse. However, people and circumstances can change. In some cases, the best decision for everyone in the family is for you and your spouse to end your marriage. However, divorce is a very emotionally and financially stressful event. It is no secret that getting a divorce is expensive, and it can take a huge toll on your current and future financial situation. Although it can feel like your entire life is being dismantled during your divorce, your finances do not have to suffer. Below are a few ways you can increase the chances of coming out of your divorce while maintaining financial security.

Understand Your Rights to Marital Property

One of the most important ways you can make sure you are in good financial standing after the divorce is having a complete picture of your marital finances. You can do this by making a list of what you and your spouse own in assets and property and by also making a list of what debts you both have incurred throughout the marriage. This way, you will know whether you will need to take on debts such as credit card balances, vehicle loans, or a home mortgage after the divorce. Once you know exactly what you and your spouse own in regard to marital property, you can begin to plan your asset division strategy to determine which assets are the most important to you and what you are willing to fight for. For example, you may want to stay in the marital home if you will be the custodial parent of your children.

Dodge County weapons violation attorney

One of the things that makes the United States different from many other countries is that there are provisions guaranteeing citizens the right to own firearms written in the country’s Constitution. Even so, each state is allowed the freedom to create its own laws pertaining to firearms and other weapons. This has led to a disparity across states regarding what is and is not legal when it comes to firearm ownership and possession. Not only do you have to follow state laws, but you must also follow federal laws. Violating any state or federal firearms laws can result in serious charges that can carry stiff penalties. If you are a Wisconsin gun owner, the following are a few things you should know.

Waukesha County spousal maintenance attorney

Getting divorced is often a long and tedious process for many couples. There are many things you have to do before you can officially call it quits. Many couples share nearly everything when they are married, including finances. While this can be convenient and useful during a marriage, it can prove to be a hassle during a divorce when you must disentangle your and your spouse’s finances. Divorce is difficult not only because of the financial aspect, but also because it is an emotional process as well. Major life transitions can be much easier with preparation, and divorce is no exception. Below are a few practical ways you can prepare for your Wisconsin divorce.

Understand Your Financial Situation

It is not uncommon for one spouse to be more knowledgeable of the finances in a marriage. If you are getting a divorce, it is important that you have a clear picture of what your finances look like. First, you should gather all of your financial documents, such as bank statements, credit card statements, as well as information about investment and retirement accounts. In addition, it is important to know about any assets you may own, such as real estate, vehicles, or other expensive items. You should then determine if you have any debt for which you and your spouse are responsible, such as credit card balances, a mortgage, vehicle loans, plus other outstanding bank or personal loans. This can give you a clearer picture of what you are working with when it comes time to divide your assets and debts.
