Domestic Violence Charges Can Ruin Your Life

There are two sides to every story. When police arrive on the scene of a domestic violence call, they are not there to listen to both sides. They are there to end the conflict and make an arrest. In fact, trying to tell the police your side of the story may actually make matters worse, as they may use your words against you. Remember your right to remain silent.

Once charges are filed, they need to be fought. Domestic violence charges are rarely dropped, even if the alleged victim would like them to be. You need an experienced attorney on your side who is willing to listen to your side of the story and make certain your voice is heard. You need an advocate who will fight for you, because these charges can ruin your life.

Understanding Domestic Violence Charges

In Wisconsin, domestic violence is not a separate charge. It is a label applied to certain criminal acts when they involve people in any sort of domestic relationship. The root charges in domestic violence cases include:

  • Assault and battery
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Stalking

When labeled as domestic violence, these charges come with special provisions, including a 72-hour no-contact order. Failure to follow the order can result in separate charges of violating a no-contact order. Additionally, victims may seek a restraining order or order of protection. This can create many challenges for the accused, but failure to follow it can also result in separate charges of violating a restraining order or order of protection.

Sorting Through The Emotions To Get Positive Results

Domestic and family violence cases are always emotional. They can arise from various scenarios and are common in divorce and child custody disputes, when false accusations may be used as leverage in a family law case. Christy M. Hall takes great care to get to the heart of these cases and reveal the truth. She will offer you guidance on adhering to the necessary orders and help you defend against the family violence charges so they do not ruin your life.
