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
