For spouses, partners, children, and family member who are at risk of being a victim of battery, aggravated assault, stalking, kidnapping, or sexual battery/assault, a restraining order, or otherwise known as a domestic violence injunction, may be need for their protection.
An important note about filing for a domestic violence injunction in the state of Florida, is that you do not have to be physically injured before you can file. You can file for an injunction if you have reason to believe that you are at risk of becoming a victim. If it is determined by the court that you are in danger of potential becoming domestic violence victim, a temporary injunction may be issued by the court, until the matter is heard.
The Temporary (ex parte) Injunction can immediately take effect and offer full protection until a court date is set and the full hearing has taken place.
Once a successful hearing, from the person who has filed the temporary injunction has taken place, the final judgment of injunction is entered. This type of injunction may offer greater protection and last longer.
If you are an innocent person who has been wrongfully of accused of domestic violence, then you could have a domestic violence injunction (restraining order) filed against you. Some people may file an injunction to gain an advantage in other litigation out of, revenge, anger, or as an attempt to ruin one’s reputation.
