If you have been threatened with or named in an injunction or restraining order in Florida, you will need legal help. The value of a skilled criminal defense attorney cannot be underestimated in these kinds of crimes.
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.
