Need Help Getting an Injunction for Protection Against Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is not limited to married or divorcing couples. It can come from a parent, a child, a former spouse, or someone with whom you have or once had an intimate relationship.

If someone in your household is exhibiting dangerous or abusive behavior, call 9-1-1 for emergency protection, and then contact our firm immediately.

What is an Injunction for Protection in Florida?

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, known as "restraining orders" in other states. A judge will immediately review the case and, in most situations, will issue a temporary injunction for protection while a more permanent order is pending.

Once a temporary injunction is issued, a hearing will be held a few weeks later to determine if the temporary order will become permanent. A domestic violence attorney in Jacksonville can appear with you at the hearing to answer questions regarding the petition and help ensure a permanent order is approved.

What Does an Injunction Do?

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

Domestic violence cases can often result in an injunction for protection or Order of Protection to prevent spousal abuse such as:

  • Punching
  • Hitting
  • Kicking
  • Pulling hair
  • Kicking
  • Slapping
  • Harassment
  • Sexual abuse
  • Rape
  • Stalking
  • Emotional abuse
  • Threats of violence

How Domestic Violence Could Affect Your Divorce

If you were arrested in a domestic violence matter, the court probably served you with a restraining order prohibiting any contact with the alleged victim.

Do not violate the order! Bear in mind that enforcement is not at the discretion of the victim. If you were falsely accused of domestic violence, our divorce lawyer can assist you. Unfortunately, false accusations of this nature are sometimes made in an attempt to gain an advantage in a divorce or custody battle. Our firm has defended a number of clients in this situation.

Contact our firm for an aggressive legal advocate in domestic violence situations.
