To minimize potential penalties associated with a crime and reduce the damages inflicted by a restraining order, the results-oriented Florida criminal defense attorneys at Carlson Meissner & Hayslett will work tirelessly to ensure your best interests and rights.

Orders of Protection in Florida

A court may place a restraining order on you following an accusation of stalking, domestic violence, and harassment based on reasonable grounds. Ultimately, the court needs to believe the victim’s well-being and life are in danger to necessitate issuing a restraining order on someone. Victims of domestic violence and other forms of assault can seek an injunction for court protection as per Florida Statutes §741.30.

Sometimes, a court may also grant temporary injunction ex parte if they believe there is an immediate need to offer protection. They will do this without entering into a complete hearing process, which makes it essential to retain the services of a skilled criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

Consequences of Violating a Restraining Order

A restraining order is a legal court-issued order forbidding the subject to contact the individual who applied for the order. You may be looking at time spent in jail and significant fines if you are charged with violating a restraining order.

The order may also prevent the accused from making any additional contact in the future. You may place yourself in an uncertain predicament by violating the restraining order. Violations may also result in harsh legal consequences.

The proven Florida restraining order defense lawyers at Carlson Meissner & Hayslett will work hard to help you avoid harsh penalties associated with the offense if you have been accused of a restraining order violation.
