Injunctions are also known as protective orders or restraining orders. They are issued by the court when a person is in imminent danger of acts of violence by another party. Several types of injunctions are available in Florida. The appropriate injunction is determined by the relationship the abused has with the abuser and the type of violence or threat that occurred. Florida takes threats and acts of violence very seriously.
There are harsh penalties imposed on those that perpetuate abuse.
If you are in danger of abuse, contact our experienced attorneys immediately to assist you with filing a petition for an injunction and represent your case in court. If there is an injunction order against you, it is imperative that you comply with the court’s orders, or you may be held in contempt. It can result in civil or criminal liability. In these cases, an experienced attorney must represent you to protect your interests.
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.
