Types of Injunctions
Dedicated Bartow Injunctions Attorney
If a judge believes you to be in immediate danger of domestic violence,
they can file a restraining order, or injunction for protection, against
your abuser without you having to testify against them. Once a full hearing
is convened, the judge can decide if filing a final injunction is warranted
given the circumstances. If you are feeling threatened or have been abused,
you need a trusted and experienced
Plant City injunctions lawyer to walk you through the process and protect yourself.

for nearly 20 years and I am highly adept at providing my clients with
the impartial, third-party advice they need at such a critical time. I

Temporary & Final Injunctions
A temporary injunction can grant you and your family immediate protection
for your abuser. A judge will review your petition as soon as it is filed
and will grant a temporary injunction if they feel you are in immediate
and present danger.
The judge will base their decision on factors including:
- The history between you and your alleged abuser, known as the respondent
- Whether the respondent has tried to harm you or those close to you
- Whether the respondent has threatened to harm or kidnap you
- Whether the respondent has used or threatened you with a weapon
- If a prior order of protection was used against the respondent before
- Whether the respondent has destroyed any of your personal property
A temporary injunction will be viable for up to 15 days, but before this,
a full hearing will be convened to decide whether to give you a final
injunction. It is in your best interest to have a knowledgeable
Lakeland injunction lawyer alongside you during this process to ensure you file
correctly and make the best case for a final injunction, which may or
may not expire.
