Domestic Violence in Family law in Madison Wisconsin is an issue the courts do not take lightly for good reason. In order to obtain a restraining order against your abuser which is a court order to keep him/her away from you, the abuse must be a physical assault, damage to property, sexual assault, or a threat to engage in these behaviors. In the eyes of Wisconsin Law domestic violence for purposes of a restrainer order does NOT include verbal or emotional abuse, financial control, adultery, or generalized non-physical threats. While these issues are, of course, very serious, the Wisconsin legislature has not included them as grounds for a domestic abuse restraining order or domestic violence in family law.
