Domestic Abuse in Wisconsin

Domestic abuse is a serious offense, and is not taken light by the courts. If you are seeking a divorce and have been abused physically or emotionally, contact our attorneys at Karp & Iancu today. We have been working divorce cases for over 45 years and can help make sure you take the necessary steps to ensure your safety and the safety of your family.

Domestic abuse is very serious and can have a large impact on your divorce proceedings. If you have been abused and are thinking about filing or have already filed for divorce, it is very important to bring that information up right away to your lawyer. If you have been accused of domestic violence, reach out to our lawyers immediately for help with your case.

What Is Domestic Abuse?

Domestic abuse is the infliction of pain, injury, fear, or illness on a family member. Even if your spouse didn’t physically harm you, you may have evidence that they threatened you or your children with violence.

When you’re faced with domestic violence from a family member, you’ll need to understand the dangers you could be in and how you can protect your family. Domestic abuse can escalate during such a tense time as a divorce, but acting now can help protect you and your children. Domestic abuse charges can heavily impact your custody agreement with your spouse. If the court finds evidence that your spouse harmed you or your children, you may receive sole custody of your children.

Defending Yourself Against Domestic Abuse

When you’re afraid that your spouse may take physical action against you, it makes your divorce proceedings that much more difficult. The threat of violence is frightening, making it more difficult to get yourself out of that situation and protect yourself.

If you’re concerned about abuse, our attorneys can help you file for a restraining order during your court proceedings, which may become a long-term order. Once this is done, speak to your lawyer about your court proceedings. While domestic abuse accusations or charges may not affect other parts of your divorce, they can play a major role in deciding where your children will live.

Child custody is decided based on the child’s best interests. This decision includes many factors, but a domestic abuse charge can affect the proceedings more than many other factors. Your child should have a safe home, so proof of domestic violence may prevent your spouse from seeking custody.

Domestic abuse can have a major effect on your divorce proceedings. It can also be draining and difficult to gather evidence and protect yourself.
