What Is The Difference Between A Fight And Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is defined as violence between people who live together, are dating or share children together. It can look a lot like a fight, but often involves disorderly conduct, battery or damage to property. Domestic violence accusations can even begin when a night of drinking gets out of hand.

Am I Going To Jail?

Many Wisconsin police departments have mandatory arrest policies when someone is accused of domestic violence. You should use your right to stay silent and contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible after your arrest. You will have a court appearance where bail is set and a no-contact order is issued.

How Much Will These Charges Cost?

The costs involved can include cash bail, fines, attorney's fees and missing wages while attending court appearances or trial. Lawyer Jeffrey Kippa can help with these court dates and make sure the overall process goes more smoothly, which can help save you time and money.
