Tell Your Side of the Story After Domestic Abuse Charges

"Domestic abuse" is not technically a criminal charge in Wisconsin, but it does describe a wide range of behavior between spouses, unmarried romantic partners and other family members - that are enumerated as specific offenses such as battery and strangulation in the Wisconsin criminal code.

Many people are unfairly charged with domestic abuse offenses when no violence actually occurred. And even when an argument has escalated, one burst of emotion during an argument should not define your entire future.

Furthermore, many people are forced to act purely out of self-defense. Unfortunately, law enforcement officers and prosecutors may not exercise their discretion or understand why you feared for your safety. We will help you defend your actions and ensure your position is well represented.

Domestic violence carries a special stigma in our society, so it is important to respond to charges of domestic abuse with the aid of an experienced attorney who can help you navigate the legal process from start to finish. At Jasti & Khandhar, we are committed to telling your side of the story after a family dispute and to minimizing the impact of criminal charges on your life.

Restraining Orders Can Have Unexpected Effects

If there is any chance that your partner or family member may petition for a restraining order after a dispute, it is crucial that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible. While establishing space between parties can provide the distance and time needed for emotions to settle down, a restraining order may limit you in ways that you did not predict. For instance, you may temporarily lose access to your home and all of your possessions if you are not allowed within a certain distance of another resident of the home. In some cases, you can also lose access to your children. Our skilled attorneys can help you anticipate and potentially prevent these negative consequences - especially when you come to us early in the process.
