This is way to complicated an issue to deal with here. You need to talk to an attorney close up, and be able to answer your questions face to face.
I would suggest you contact Community Justice, or Legal Action of Wisconsin both are in Madison.
They will likely be more in your price range (assuming you are just starting out).
Sorry to do that to you but there is a lot to determine the risk, it is better to do so face to face.
