Aggressive Bartow Family Law Attorney
Get Peace of Mind with a Domestic Violence Injunction
Victims of domestic violence, or even those who reasonably suspect they
will become a victim soon, have a legal recourse in the form of a court-ordered
injunction which can be filed against their abuser. This can protect you
from further harm whether your abuser still lives with you or not. You
should retain legal help to file with the court from a trained Bartow
family law attorney to have your best chance at a successful injunction
For over 15 years, my firm, Advocate Law Firm, P.A. has worked to resolve
family law matters for my clients through understanding and vigorous advocacy.
I make myself available to answer client questions on weekends and evenings
because I understand when you are hurt and worried over what to do, you
can’t wait to get answers. While most attorneys charges an hourly
rate when it comes to injunction relief, my firm charges a flat fee until
your trial or evidentiary hearing is over.
What can an injunction do?
If the judge perceives an immediate and present danger to you, they can
issue a temporary injunction without the abuser even having to be present.
If the defendant is asked to participate in a hearing, the judge can hear
a contested hearing.
An injunction can have the power to do the following:
- Restrain the accused from committing acts of domestic violence
- Order the defendant to participate in treatment, intervention, or counseling
- Award exclusive us of the shared dwelling to the victim
- Providing temporary support for minor children until the injunction expires
- Any other relief the court deems necessary to protect the victim
Violating a court-ordered injunction is a misdemeanor which carries up
to a year a jail. Violations include refusing to leave the shared dwelling,
being within 500 feet of the victim’s school, job, or residence,
or coming within 100 feet of the victim’s vehicle whether occupied or not.
