There are several different types of injunctions or restraining orders for protection in Florida. A restraining order can be sought for protection against domestic violence, repeat violence, sexual violence, or dating violence.
The court can address many things when issuing an injunction, such as custody of any minor children, temporary support, and visitation. Additionally, if an injunction is granted you will be unable to own or possess a firearm. You want to make sure you are fully aware of what is being sought and of all the consequences associated with a restraining order being imposed.
A petition for an injunction is a civil matter and is separate from any related criminal matter. If you have been served with papers indicating that another person is seeking to file a restraining order against you, or you are seeking to file a petition for your own protection, contact the Law Offices of Powers Sellers & Finkelstein, PLC. You need to have an experienced attorney on your side for your hearing. Call us for a private evaluation at (727) 531-2926 anytime, 24-7!
