Injunctions are Court Orders that prevent a person from having contact with or going within a specified distance of certain places where the person obtaining the injunctions may live, work or go to on a frequent basis. They are essentially designed to provide a level of protection for an individual who has been the victim of violence. In addition to provisions regarding contact, injunction typically contain other provisions of protection including preventing the other party from owning a firearm, and in many domestic cases containing provisions regarding the children and support. In certain cases, the Court can also require the respondent to participate in treatment, intervention, and counseling services.
When a party files for an injunction, the Court determines whether or not a temporary injunction is appropriate based solely on the allegations contained in the Petition and whether the Court feels there is an immediate danger based on these allegations. In some cases, these allegations are false which is why a hearing is set within 15 days to allow both parties to appear and be heard as to whether the issuance of an injunction is warranted in the case. At the hearing on the Injunction, both sides will have the opportunity to present testimony and evidence to the Court as to why they believe the injunction should be issued or denied. It is important to strongly consider retaining an attorney for representation at the injunction hearing, as an attorney will know the rules of evidence and how to properly prepare and present your side of the case in a persuasive and effective manner. Whether you need an injunction to prevent someone from having contact with you, or you are disputing an injunction being issued against you, our Orlando injunction attorney can help you.
