Consequences of Domestic Violence Conviction in Wisconsin
In Wisconsin, domestic abuse charges can be levied against a current or former spouse, an adult that you have lived or currently live with, or someone with whom you share a child. Domestic violence charges are usually associated with a battery charge, which could be classified as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the severity of the charge. If you are convicted, you could face:
- Confinement for anywhere from 90 days to 15 years
- Fines up to $50,000
- Loss of custody of your children
- Loss of the right to carry firearms for the rest of your life
