In Wisconsin, you may file two different types of orders/injunctions: harassment, or domestic abuse.
There are numerous differences between the two charges. However, the largest difference between a harassment injunction and a domestic violence injunction is the individual who is being accused. If the individual does not live in your home and they are not a family member, then you must consult with an attorney about filing a harassment injunction. If the individual lives with you, is a family member or is in a relationship with you, then you must consult with an attorney about filing a domestic abuse restraining order.
If you hope to stop the abuse, contact Kowalski, Wilson & Vang, LLC. We work with abuse/harassment victims with compassion and understanding to help them through this difficult time, and ensure their safety and well-being.
