Domestic violence is considered a crime when an act of violence occurs between people who are married, divorced, live together, are dating, are current or former roommates, share a child, or are related by blood or marriage. Domestic violence is aggressively prosecuted in Wisconsin and carry severe consequences for those accused.
Wisconsin has a Mandatory Arrest Law which requires law enforcement to arrest someone once law enforcement has been called to a domestic violence scene, if the officer finds that there are reasonable grounds to be believe that the person has committed domestic violence and one or both of the following circumstances are met:
- There are grounds for assuming that the domestic abuse is likely to continue, or
- There is evidence of physical injury to the alleged victim.
Once a law enforcement officer has made an arrest in a domestic violence case, the officer must offer the alleged victim the possibility of a 72-hour no contact order. Unless the alleged victim signs a waiver to reject it, the contact prohibition will ensure that the arrested person avoids the residence of the alleged victim and, if applicable, any premises temporarily occupied by the alleged victim.
