Domestic Violence Defense in Wisconsin

Being accused of domestic violence is a serious charge and should not be taken lightly. The best thing to do in a situation involving criminal charges is to contact a local attorney right away. They will be able to guide you through the process and provide you with the details of your case moving forward.

Our lawyers at Karp & Iancu understand how dire the consequences can be when you’re accused of domestic violence, and we know what you need to do to fight back. When your spouse or significant other accuses you of domestic violence, it can be difficult to overcome those accusations. Domestic violence charges can affect your criminal record, child custody, and/or visitation rights.

If you feel you are being blamed for something you didn’t do, reach out to us as soon as possible.

Defining Domestic Violence

Before you begin fighting back, it is important to understand what constitutes domestic violence. Understanding the charge you’re facing and what it could mean for your future is why involving a lawyer early on in the case is extremely important. Your lawyer will be able to lay out your options in a digestible and easy to understand way.

In Wisconsin, domestic violence refers to situations where one partner in a relationship turns to violence toward someone they currently or formerly had a relationship with. This may be physical violence, or it may only be the threat of violence. In any of these cases, aggression has been used to intimidate, threaten, or harm the other person.

All the following injuries or threats may fall under domestic abuse:

  • Physical violence
  • Threats of violence
  • Sexual assault
  • Intentional infliction of illness

Domestic Violence Is a Crime

If you’ve been accused of domestic violence, you might be concerned that you don’t have a case to defend yourself; however, if you don’t fight back to have those charges reduced or dropped, your future and your family could be impacted.

Domestic violence is a serious offense. First, you’re facing an arrest if the officer believes you may cause harm, which will remain on your record. If you’re charged, your prison sentence will depend on the types of crimes you’re charged with, like battery or assault. However, if you’re convicted in a case involving domestic violence, your sentence could be extended by two years.

Worse, it can affect your family. If your spouse is seeking a divorce, for example, arrests and convictions of domestic abuse will be considered. That could mean less time or no time with your children if you’re convicted.
