Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
Unfortunately, I see situations like this a lot where the local police simply do not want to get involved.
However, under Wisconsin law, you can file a civil claim against the neighbors for creating a "nuisance".
What if they file one against me?
In order to have the best chance of winning such a case, you need to have both audio/video recordings and decibel readings to show the level of noise that is being created. Noting the date, times, etc. of each unreasonable activity.
They don't have a case against you.
Calling someone a name is XXXXX XXXXX offense. Threatening them would be, but not a single occurrence of name calling.
Until/unless you are able to gather sufficient evidence of the nuisance, you're going to have a tough time getting anyone to take action.
But, as soon as you do have evidence, not only will you have a case, but you might be able to get the local police or local code enforcement officer involved.
