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.
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.

I couldn't have asked for more!
I just want to publicly show my gratitude to Ms. Salvia and the rest of the team that worked on my recent case. I really felt I was represented well by Ms. Salvia and she took the lead in making strong points for my case. She was able to properly vocalize what I needed and look out for things that I didn't even consider. She is very experienced. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much for help and professionalism.- Dalena T.
Martha and the rest of the team constantly kept me in the loop of all that was occurring
There was never a time that I was alone in my divorce process. The staff/team was in contact communication with me. Any questions, concerns or issues I may have had, they were front and center ready to help me through the process and educate me on what the next steps were. Divorce in and of itself is a very emotional, trying and frustrating process. Martha and the rest of the team constantly kept me in the loop of all that was occurring, what was needed, any changes that were coming and how to properly handle them. Thank you so much for making a stressful and life changing event, easier to navigate.- Michelle Acevedo

I would recommend Melissa Wilson to anyone that is looking for Honesty, integrity and a fighter where it counts... CASE CLOSED!!!! and so is mine. cant forget Martha her assistant, taking my calls always and listening to me vent. Thank you all in that office Sincerely Niko- Former Client
