About Restraining Orders
A restraining order in Florida is called an Injunction for Protection Against
Domestic Violence, often just called an Injunction. It is used when there
is a domestic situation wherein the spouse or another family member is
being abusive in some manner to someone else in the household, a spouse,
child or other relative. The abuse can take the form of mental, physical
or verbal abuse, often escalating into actual violence. Many times in a
divorce situation emotions can run high and create an environment where this type
of behavior can occur. A separation could spark threats, harassing phone
calls and even stalking.
If you have a situation such as this, it is important to seek the guidance
of a qualified Florida Restraining order attorney to assist you in handling
the situation as quickly as possible. The situation can become dangerous
if not handled properly. Our office can prepare an Injunction order to
prevent your spouse from harassing or approaching you. It can be a temporary
Injunction for up to 15 days until your final hearing is held before a
judge. At that time the judge may give you a Final Injunction for a specified
amount of time or have no expiration date. The injunction helps in the
- Forbids the person from harassing or directly contacting you
- Forbids the person from entering your home, workplace or school
- Forces the person to leave your home
- Grants you temporary custody of your children
- Orders the person to undergo counseling
Filing an Injunction does not constitute the person being convicted or
charged with a crime, but does have legal ramifications should the person
violate the Injunction.
