Testimonials | Contact Us | Give Us a Call

Every day, people all across the United States are harassed, threatened, or made to live in fear by others. It may be a disgruntled neighbor, a friend, a loved one, or even a complete stranger. Tragically, many times the police are not able to do anything about it, and our clients feel there is nothing they can do. Here at First Coast Criminal Defense, our Jacksonville injunction lawyers can help you find a solution. We can assist you in applying for an injunction to protect you and your rights and represent you in court.

There are also those who have been falsely accused of harassing or threatening another person. Unfortunately, this happens all too often, and many make the mistake of not fighting it in court. If an injunction is granted against you, you may later be arrested for violation of injunction, which is a first-degree misdemeanor and punishable by up to 12 months in jail.

Difference Between Injunction and Restraining Order in Florida

An injunction can be asked of the court if an individual hasn't been convicted of a crime. A restraining order, on the other hand, is issued at the close of a criminal case. A restraining order may be sought as immediate protection while in pursuit of an official injunction. Injunctions and restraining orders issued in Florida are are enforceable throughout the nation.

Types of Injunctions in Florida

The state of Florida allows individuals to request five different types of injunctions, or protective orders. In any instance, a judge may grant a temporary injunction, which stays in effect until both the person seeking the injunction and the respondent (or the person who has had the injunction placed against them) can attend a hearing.

The different types of restraining orders available in Florida include:

  • Domestic Violence Injunction
  • Stalking Injunction
  • Dating Violence Injunction
  • Sexual Violence Injunction
  • Repeat Violence Injunction

While each type of injunction is slightly different from the next, all have similar consequences for the respondent. In all cases, an injunction prevents the respondent from contacting the victim in any way—whether in person, by phone, via email, or online. In certain cases, an injunction will prevent the respondent from seeing his or her children and may require the respondent to forfeit his or her right to own a firearm/ammunition. Additionally, violations of injunctions come with serious penalties, including but not limited to jail time.
