If your friend in Wisconsin is facing a situation where a restraining order has been filed against her wrongly and she hasn't been served with the order or attended any court hearings related to it, there are potential implications. If proper service hasn't occurred, the court might lack...View More
I do not practice law in WI. However, in Ohio this can be done so it is likely also possible in WI. Assuming you are able to pursue the matter to judgment and succeed, you will have an issue of collecting your judgment and not having the defendant declare bankruptcy.
I filed a TRO for my daughter due to 3 witnesses stepping forward to abuse they saw, heard or were told about that was happening to my 2 year old. I took it to court but i lost the case and they told me i didn't have enough evidence and that spanking a child was not against the law. my child... View More
Sometimes, depending on the age of your child, the best thing to do is to find a therapist for your child. A Therapist is a mandatory reporter for abuse and would be able to have much more insight and credibility.
My parents asked what happened. I told them that I took the blame for someone else’s actions. They said they would call the school, and if the principal said something different, I would be “Beat the sh*t out of me with a belt, until my a** was so red, that I couldn’t sit down.”
Recently had a court date extended but had to pay a signature bond with conditions. The conditions. He was not to come in contact with my home, vehicle etc except texts to exchange kids. I have a text to prove he was in my home. Now what
Yes. If you are on bond for a crime and the Court orders you to have no contact with someone you are the one constrained, the other person is not. However, if there is an issue with this contact and you want it to stop, you may be able to take other action such as requesting a restraining order...View More
I hold a harassment RO against a sibling in WI. The injunction requires them to avoid “causing” anyone from contacting me. Contact was to a mutual family member where they, unprompted, threatened to ruin me financially and lied about my conduct; a repeat of some of the behavior that the court... View More
I believe that the Court would find this to be a threat through a third party. You would need to find exceptions to the hearsay rule to have these threats admitted into evidence. The third party receiving the communication would need to testify. A statement by the person It would be considered...View More
My wife hit me and I have a black eye, I pushed her off of me and left the house. She called PD and they issued a warrant for me. She said I punched her and that she didn't hit me at all. Now I'm being charged. Court is tomorrow 10-30-19
police come, ask 2 questions then arrest me. they did not ask me my Maranda rights and took me to jail. bail was $850. I am recently divorced and won the house in the divorce & i just recently refinanced it and now only in my name.
I do not see a question. Miranda rights are read so any statement you make can be included in the case. Perhaps your first two answers can be excluded. Is the charge disorderly conduct? I think you should see an attorney and get discovery.
I know someone who sells guns and said they were in his store trying to buy a gun for him knowing he is legally not supposed to have them. What is the law regarding his spouse registering them and letting him use them. They both know he cannot legally possess them. And is there a way to turn... View More
Husband may not possess a firearm (gunpowder driven). Spouse can have one (but not a good idea.). He can not use it, handle it or save it some place.. He also can not buy one whether or not they will sell him one. Enhanced criminal penalties can apply if he is found with one while committing...View More
It all depends on what he is doing when he keeps coming back to the residence. If he is engaged in violent or offensive behavior with you, consider notifying the police since you can get a record of it from a police report. If this happens frequently, you may want to consider filing for a...View More
Your question is unclear. It sounds like a woman has a restraining order against a man. The restraining order prohibits the man from contacting the woman. The restraining order does not, however, prohibit the woman from contacting the man. As such, it follows that the man cannot "take her to...View More
