Orders of Protection in Tampa Domestic Violence Cases

Effects of Tampa Domestic Violence Injunctions for Protection

An arrest for domestic violence is different from most crimes due to the fact that it will often result in a temporary order of protection being served against the alleged perpetrator. The victims of domestic violence will often return to their abusers, only to suffer continued physical violence or sexual abuse, and injunctions for protection serve to end this cycle by placing a legal buffer between the parties. They also work to protect the victim against continued harassment or attacks. Unfortunately, if you have been made the subject of a restraining order, you may have been forced out of your home and could now be living with severe restrictions on where you can go, as the order can make it illegal for you to be anywhere the victim is likely to be found.

Tampa Domestic Violence Lawyer for Orders of Protection

It is vital that you avoid being caught in violation of your restraining order, as you can be arrested and charged with a first degree misdemeanor, punishable by a $1,000 fine and up to a year in jail. This applies even if the other party has initiated contact and has invited you to meet-enforcement of the order is not at the discretion of your spouse or significant other, who must go to court and formally request to have it lifted before you can legally be in contact.

A Tampa criminal defense lawyer from Taracks & Associates can represent you in court in a petition to have the order removed or modified so that you can get your life back on track. Keep in mind however that many relationships affected by domestic violence are characterized by repeat occurrences, and the existence of the protective order may give you the time and space you need to make a fresh start in your life. An attorney from our firm is ready to meet with you today to discuss your goals in the situation and can begin work on your case immediately.
