Defense Against Injunctions For Protection In Volusia And Seminole Counties

Protective orders, restraining orders, injunctions; all of these related terms mean one thing — someone has gone to court and asked a judge to do what it takes to keep you away from him or her. These orders can greatly disrupt your life and your relationships, and they can interfere with your ability to travel, own a gun or exercise a number of other rights.

At Damore, Delgado & Romanik , we provide highly experienced and aggressive criminal defense. Our lawyers represent clients throughout Central Florida who have been served with civil or criminal injunctions. If you are served with an injunction for protection or think you may soon be served with one, it is vital to contact a Florida attorney who can help you. It's a very significant matter. When injunctions are entered, they are permanent.

What Are The Different Types Of Injunctions For Protection?

Four varieties of injunctions can be served against a person for his or her alleged bad behavior. Our Daytona Beach law firm has experience helping people with all of them, doing everything we can to ensure that each client's rights are respected. The four types of injunctions are:

  • Stalking injunctions (including cyberstalking): These can be issued against someone who allegedly sent a harassing text message or Facebook message or made an objectionable phone call.
  • Repeat violence injunctions: These can be issued against someone who commits two separate acts of violence or stalking, one of which was in the past six months.
  • Domestic violence injunctions: These can be issued when someone has been a victim of violence or stalking or has reason to believe violence is imminent. These injunctions are used only when the violence is between spouses or former spouses or any other relatives by blood or marriage who live in the same household.
  • Sexual violence injunctions: These cover sexual battery, a lewd or lascivious act in the presence of someone under 16 years old, luring a child, sexual performance of a child, or any felony with a sexual component.

Do Not Make The Mistake Of Trying To Represent Yourself

We see many injunctions that are filed unfairly. For instance, often a vengeful ex-spouse or partner will use a domestic violence injunction to temporarily gain exclusive use of the house and custody of the children.

If you try to fight such an injunction without the help of an attorney, you may lose, simply because you don't know the right questions to ask, or you don't know your rights, or you don't know how to address the judge correctly. Those who ask for injunctions must follow certain steps. If they do not, then an injunction should not issue. There may be valid defenses to the issuance of an injunction as well. Our Volusia County and Seminole County attorneys are here to provide the professional and knowledgeable representation you need.
