Orders of Protection in Jacksonville

Guidance from Our Jacksonville Family Law Attorney

If you need an Injunction for a Protection or Order of Protection, contact a Jacksonville divorce lawyer for help preparing your petition. A competent lawyer can ensure sufficient information is provided for both a temporary and permanent injunction for protection or a restraining order. When a person feels threatened, harassed or in physical danger from another individual, they can petition the court for an Injunction for Protection or Order of Protection. From there, a judge will immediately review the case, and in most situations will issue a temporary injunction for protection or a restraining order.

Then, a hearing will be held a few weeks later to determine if the temporary order will become permanent. A Jacksonville family law attorney can appear with you at the hearing to answer questions regarding the petition and help ensure a permanent order is approved. An Injunction for Protection or Order of Protection will prevent the person named in the order from having any further contact with the petitioner. This includes:

  • Written communication
  • Electronic communication
  • Verbal communication

If the order is violated, it can result in penalties such as jail time and fines.
