In Florida, a person may try and obtain an injunction, otherwise known as a restraining order against someone for an alleged acts including domestic violence, harassment, dating violence or other threats of imminent harm. We represent both Petitioners (those seeking to obtain an injunction), and Respondents (those who an injunction has been filed against). In Florida, a person (Petitioner) may file for an injunction for protection against domestic violence. This can be done pursuant to Florida Statute Section 741.30. Here, the Petitioner first acquires a temporary injunction. At which time, the matter would be set for a hearing in court.
Along with representing Petitioners seeking these injunctions, we also represents Respondents who have been served with the initial temporary injunction. Our team works with Respondents in getting the injunction dismissed. Respondents must be aware that at this hearing, certain findings can be made by the judge that can have lasting consequences. These consequences can include liberty of movement, detrimental findings in a divorce proceeding, and potential arrest on an alleged further subsequent violation of the final injunction.

It is important that both Petitioners and Respondents understand all of their rights and have proper representation.
