What is an Injunction?

 

An injunction, also known as a restraining order, is a court order commanding the person causing the violence or threatening the violence to stop. In some cases, an injunction may command the person to take specific action.

 

Injunctions are used to protect the victims of violence and are commonly found in cases including:

 

  • Domestic violence

  • Dating violence

  • Sexual Violence

  • Repeat Violence

  • Stalking

Each injunction will come with a different set of requirements that must be met. Once those requirements are met, the judge will issue an injunction and grant you the protection you deserve.

 

The requirements associated with injunctions in Florida can be rather detailed. It’s important to hire a Jacksonville attorney with experience filing for and receiving injunctions. At Tassone, Dreicer & Hill, our legal team has decades of experience receiving injunctions for clients. We have worked on numerous cases involving the need for a restraining order. Call our law offices today and find out how we can help you.

 

The Process to Receive an Injunction

 

In order to receive the protection of an injunction, you must first file a petition for the type of injunction you desire. A judge will review the petition and will decide to provide or deny temporary relief. Once a temporary injunction has been granted, it will go into effect immediately and a hearing will be set.

 

The hearing will happen within 15 days. At the hearing, the judge will hear both sides and will decide whether a permanent injunction should be granted.

 

Injunction Order Violation

 

While injunctions are civil in nature, they still have an impact on your constitutional rights. Violating an injunction can lead to criminal punishments. If an injunction has been granted against a person, many rights may be lost. The injunction may prohibit the following:

 

  • Any contact with the alleged victim

  • Any contact with a third-party of the alleged victim with the intent of providing a message to the alleged victim

  • Possession of a firearm and ammunition

  • Being within 500 feet of the alleged victim, their place of work, their vehicle or their home

An injunction will likely show up on a background check and could affect employment opportunities.
