Your Future is Too Important to Risk

What is a Domestic Violence Injunction?

According to the Office of the State Court of Florida, a domestic violence injunction (DV Injunction) simply put is a restraining order. It is a court order to restrict a person from all the following toward another person:

  • Threatening
  • Harassing
  • Being violent

These orders are not incredibly difficult to get. An individual is only required to bring forth reasonable evidence that they have been the victim of domestic abuse or have reason to believe that they are in danger of becoming a victim.

When this injunction is granted, the individual receiving the order will likely be barred from contacting the filer by phone, email, text, letter or in person. This could also mean that a person receiving the injunction has to stay away from areas in close proximity to the filer’s workplace. Receiving a DV injunction is a civil order which means that it is not equal to a criminal charge. However, it is still legally binding and a violation of the order could justify an arrest.
