Types of Injunctions in Florida:
Process of an Injunction
When a petitioner files for an injunction in Florida, a judge reviews the allegations within 24-48 hours. Based on the facts presented, the judge may order a temporary injunction until a scheduled formal hearing. The respondent is notified of the temporary injunction and the court hearing. During the hearing, each party presents evidence such as medical records, witnesses, text messages, videos, and e-mails, to be reviewed by the judge. The judge will determine at that time if they will order a permanent injunction. It will remain in effect until the court terminates it.
