Types of Injunctions

Dedicated Lakeland 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.

Advocate Law Firm, P.A. has been assisting clients with family law matters for over 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 have helped countless people navigate the family law court and make the best decision for their future.

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.
